Started making another rod

I'm making another rod for a buddy of mine, should be finished just in time for the upcoming season. My buddy is a big Carolina Panther fans so I kept the thread colors to blue, white and black. I went with a cross wrap diamond design for this specific rod, I think its turning out pretty nice so far.









Cross wraps are visually nice ones they are completed but they do take awhile to wrap. I have close to 4 hours in just the cross wrap, another 15 minutes in wrapping the 1st guide also. The payoff is worth it though. I need to pack the threads a little bit tighter before I apply the 1st coat of thread finish.
