9wt.."The gun"

Here is a heck of a 9wt. that I've recently finished for a guy who's after big pikes in the Danube Delta..until I'll receive some fishy pictures from him with the rod in action, you can take a good look on this rod's esthetics..possibly the most handsome handle and fighting butt I've built so far. The rod is equiped with ceramic guides, from butt to tip (two oversized double foot guides for better distance shooting), the latest in light weight and durability. The line truly flows through these guides and big distances are at home with this ultra fast action rod.
Thankx for looking everyone!!
