New UL Vintage Rod Build

Just finished an UL casting rod build. Bought an old handle from fleabay which needed a lot of work. Had my rod guy attach a Lamiglass UL blank. Total cost $120 and I still have another handle left over. Next one will be all stealth black

That's where I got the idea but didn't want to pay the high price

Love it. I bet people's jaws will drop when they see it cast UL baits.

That is a thing of beauty!. And it has given me an idea to build one like it! I always liked pistol grip rods. The only kind I used growing up. Now that I know how to build rods (built around 20 so far) this is just something to spark it up again. Thanks for posting
