As you folks know conceptualising can only take you so far. It helps in rare cases to see others doing something similar, but in my case often times it's just a matter of taking the plunge so to speak up. Grab some choice jewels and run with it or stand Pat :big grin: I figured the SLP pink would probably play well with her. Of course I say that because I've already done other colors with other reels in regard to accent pieces. Glad folks are appreciating it, course it's not for everyone but I'm glad there's folks out there that can appreciate it it's a damn fine reel to use that is for sure regardless of look :big grin: I have one more to do Hyper Lariat Galaxy Red ;) Then I'll post a picture of all four girls spiffed up.

Initially I was going to match up the knobs with the cork but decided to opt this route. Shoutouts to Akira @ Hedgehog Studios for parts and the super kind folks at this place http://kepongtackle.com for the specimen.

I'll usually dress a reel up just as I wanted, then after some time passes I'll take a look at everything I have. From there the mind wanders and I'll start moving stuff around, ending up with something even better than the originally thought out plan.

You get an "A" for originality. Those SLP knobs look prettier than a beauty queen's kissable lips. Don't leave that reel alone around your single friends. :lol:

Super appreciated Gents I do it for myself but I do it also to try to keep up with you guys a lot of you fellas have inspired me to further my Fall to the dark side and I am digging it anyway I need to get out fishing more it's been a couple weeks. Been busy with getting the kids squared away for school plus for me the weather has been pretty wacky here in AZ plus a before thst I've been on a dry spell. I'm stuck on a yak so I can only do so many areas I need to get back on a boatand backseat I miss those days :crying: anyway I appreciate it and of course stay tuned cuz I'm getting in the snooze stuff when I can't wait to show you guys!
