Default New swimbait rod

Here it is guys. After using some of the customs that Koldkut builds, I decided to pull the trigger on one. I didn't have a rod that would throw some of my bigger lures like my lunker punker and some swimbaits.

It's a beast! I wanted something that could throw large ass lures and this thing will certainly do that. Could prolly use it as a surf rod too hahaha. I just got a new reel for it as well. A Revo SX. I dropped a bunch of Yo Zuri H2O 15lb flouro on it. I think i am ready for some Pike :thumbsupthree:

Rainshadow RX7 ISWB 945 7'10" 1 pc, 15-30 lb test 2-6 oz lure wt. You can see the size here as I am about 6'3 or so.


Long handle


I had Andrew make the wraps red. Red and black rod.




Spiral wrap


New reel












The order

Need to get Boon to weigh that rod....I'd like to see it under 7oz myself, but I wasn't trying to make it as light as can be.

Looks real nice...watch out for the ceiling fan, though!

Time to get some scales and slime on that rod.
