    The Beast!

  With the help of fisherboy, I commissioned (it is a work of art!) Stan at Shakedown Custom Rods to build me a cranking stick. Over the last couple weeks, Stan kept me informed of the progress of the rod he termed "The Beast" and Tuesday it arrived to me!


The rod a MHX CB 805 blank, fuji custom reel seat, fuji microguides spiral wrapped and a split grip with the grips wrapped with a zebra print. He even scanned that grip print and laminated that pattern into the reel blank.


I just wanted to thank Stan and let you guys know if you are looking for a custom rod, he's the man! This is the coolest looking rod and the craftsmanship is unbelievable!


As soon as I can figure out how to post the picture of it here tomorrow, I will put it on here so you can judge and see "The Beast!"

Kevin was having trouble posting picutres so here is a couple pictures of the rod. The pictures don't do justice to the rod, the black and whites really pop. It was a blast building this rod. Thanks again. Stan

 Not my style but that's why you order custom. It gives you the exact rod you want. Very nicely done.
