Labanowski Heirloom Rod

Well It is mostly done. I might add a couple techniques after I pop it cherry on Reds and Specks in Texas. The Handle is a Blabaum Special. I think he told me the spider web was made from my very own Budweiser Cans left over from the Conclave in 08.(it makes a good story anyway. Tiger in the split grip with Met Purple and Flo Chartreuse sent to me from the G man. Cross Wrap variation off the optical and the weave is the Badass Bass originally done as a grip from Billy V and the weave was done once by Ray A. I of course tweeked it with Owens P2W. Also a bit of an experiment. Someone asked me a couple months back about where he could get some E thread so he could weave with D and I said he might try two turns each movement with A. Surprise It works pretty darn good. Since A is lower profile it also tends to keep the weave quite tight and not so bulky. Opens the door for more experiments. Pictures arent my usual quality because I was rushing the job before heading down to Dads house again to work on fixing it up for a future move and to attend another Healing Waters get together. If you guys want I can re do them later. Oh enjoy the game. Dont guess many will see this today. Oh kept the guides simple to set off the other thread work.

Oh forgot to give kudos to Scott Troop for the Tiger wrap technique and Bill Batson and Batson Enterprises for an awesome 822.5 blank that has become one of my favorite light rods for both baitcasting and spinning.
