The blank is one of a kind right now It was dubbed The Beast by Alex, the owner of Hydra and ALX rods. I kinda complained that I needed something heavier than the Hydra BTSWB955 and he baked it up for me, it's 8' and the ratings are currently unknown, but it's heavier than the 955 by quite a bit, I wanted it primarily for 6oz baits, but I think it may have a little more in it. Current weight before the dec wrap and trim wraps on the grips and seat is 6.7oz, will likely run out to 7.5 once I'm fully finished with it.

I normally like Kigan guides, but they don't make any tips to go on this one, I went with fuji size 8's tangle free guides all the way down, spiral wrapped to the left.

The dec wrap will hopefully look similar to this once it's done, just in my colors
