Default AllStar BAT845 micro spiral

Still working on my personal warfare for the upcoming year...This was a very fast build for me...Little grip work with simple trim wraps....In fact,I hurried so much I even forgot to wipe the china marker residue off the stripper guide before the photo...Im just ready to slap a revo on it and put it to work...
I wont lie though, It was nice to kick back and wrap a simple one...Ill probably start doing more slightly more minimal builds...

Thanks for looking.

Looks great man! You did knock that sucker out fast. I'm still slightly jealous that you scored old All Star blanks The green trim "winding checks" really set it off. The grips are killer too. Nice work!

Good looking stick Waffle! <-----really no way to make that sound right! I dig the colors!

I second the motion. Do I hear a third?

Nice work. That is one heck of a fine looking rod.

If you ever get the chance to use a Nelson Custom Masterpiece, you'll want to pay him.



Waffle do I now get a break on the next one I order? J/K
