X2! Where is that hood from?
I turned it myself. The acrylic is from Beartooth Woods.
How did you do it? 1st inner hole for ULH and then shaping outer dimension for perfect? Looks very good!

Re: Which BFS reel?

Daiwa Steez/Alphas CT TW.

Original spool casts even 2g lures. You can also use that for thicker lines and heavier lures if need. Much more versatile than pure bfs reel. =D>

Re: Question about imperfections on x-ray blank

It's normal. Almost every x-ray blank has some of those cosmetic errors. Does not affect performance.

Re: Do you guys always use reel covers and rod sleeves?

Sleeves yes, Covers not. I use only custom rods and most of them are w/o varnish (or coating on blank).
