    some mods to the stick!!

    Did some remodeling to my surf rod,the butt section was to long for my short arm's and the eva grip was to fat to hold onto comfrtably!!!
    So i ditched the eva went to tuna cord wrap,and put a wrap-on style reel seat on it about six inches down!!!!!

    Here it is before.....

    And after........

    The rod is alot more comfortable to hold,BUT it loads alot diffrent......
    First cast w/ 6nbait gave me a serious line cut,but over all i like the mods!!!!!!!

    tight lines!!!!!!

    Have you thought about getting a Breakaway cannon? Might help you out with getting the rod loaded better and keep you from cutting your finger.

    Good looking, nice job.
    Just my 2 cents.
    It probably is better to do an additional wrap on the mid section of that plate seat.
    I believe that narrow section on the middle of the seat is designed for that use...

    Cheers,
