I wanted to have the best possible conventional rod for live bait fishing for striped bass, sparing no expense. I talked to Scott Leonard and we drew up some plans for such a rod. It is built on a Lamiglas #1081M blank. Special components chosen were Fuji silicon carbide guides, green pigmented composition cork, green Fuji reel seat, green butt cap and green, silver and black wraps.
Here is the start of the process, reaming out the corks and setting them on the blank.
If you are interested in purchasing a custom rod like this or any other rod you can contact Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also coming soon will be a special selection of inshore custom rods, the "Captain Al Lorenzetti Signature Series". It will include two models in three different sets. 8 foot medium or light live bait, 8.5 foot medium or light plugging and 7 foot medium or light ocean fluke rods.
