I have given rod building a shot this year but since I enjoy woodworking I decided to build this rod with a split wood grips. Maple and Walnut.

Looks great, I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while. What kind of rod is that? Also was it a full length style grip befor?

Michael The rod was a blank I purchased along with eyes, handle and etc. from MUDHOLE. It is what they call a CRB blank sold by them for Custom Rod Builders. So there was really never any thing on the rod. Then I turned the wood for the grips. They have a lot of free videos on their site showing the rod building process. Like everything else it is kind of a pricey hobby but enjoyable.

Nice grip! I’ve been building rods for about 5 years now. Wood grips are becoming popular. Go to www.rodbuildingforum.com and put in “wood” for a search. Nice one was posted today.
