First is a 7' 3 pc 2wt graphite rod . It has a med fast action and casts pretty nice , at least in my pool .

the second is X posted . I wanted a short glass switch but couldn't find one so I built it .

I started with an 8' Aventek s-glass blank that was baby chit yellow . I stripped it and wet sanded the heck out of it starting with 400 wet or dry and progressed up to 2000 . I originally wanted to change the color to a Sunkist yellow/orange but once I stripped the blank it kind of grew on me so I kept it bare . I used Pac Bay single foots and a Pack Bay Ext butt kit using a half wells cork handle from who knows where ? I bought a cheap aluminum reel seat off ebay and went to work . What I ended up with is a sub 5-oz s-glass Switch rod in a 3/4 wt with really nice action for right at $100 . I cant wait to fish it .

Hey Ron,
Does that mean you are now fishing for lunar trout? Man, you must have a lot of backing on the reel.

C'mon Ron, you can tell us the truth. Have you been fishing in Area 51 again?
