Sceptre Glass Rod



I finished Sceptre staggered ferrule 7'10" #5/6 glass rod. The wraps are claret with tan single turn accents-depending on the light source, they turn different shades of burgundy. Unfortunately it's too cold to fish today, but I feel it will complement my Lamiglas 8' #5 perfectly. It won't be long and I will be able to test it on some spring creeks and make better comparison.

Vlad...you are truly an artist of the long rod builds. Damn fine work. I want us to do a project together when you have some free time. I was thinking of ordering a Steffen seven foot five weight blank and hold it until we could do a build.

Thanks for the compliment Cameron! Sure, Steffen sounds like a mighty fine choice for a blank. I never ordered one from him (I will in the future), but I know it will probably take several weeks for him to complete a blank order.

Thanks again,
Vlad

I have little knowledge of glass rods. Whatever that is it looks sharp! Your craftsmanship is outstanding in all that you do. Keep posting, as I enjoy admiring your work.

take care,
