customizedfishingtackle Fell asleep reaming this insert and finally finished it off this morning. Pretty happy with how it looks like with the #americantackle braided reel seat.. Just need to glue and turn the rest if the handle. #rodbuilding #rodbuilder #rodwrapper #rodbuilders #customrod #customfishingrod 1d
