    Cotswold Rods examples

    Post  Robby Malfliet on Sun Aug 08, 2010 5:42 pm

    In need of a set of rods?
    Look no further!
    Dan and Tom deliver top craftmanship!
    No matter how you want your rods to be built, Cotswold Rods has the solution!

    Here a few examples of their work.

    The XXIII's (these are mine).



    The Torrix's (these are Wes's).



    The VIII (unbeatable price for a custom rod!).



    The Revealer marker rod.



    The net.



    My favourite detail at the moment... Carbon butt grips! cheers

    I've just ordered a Harrison spod rod and a marker rod.
    Would like to see Dan put the carbon handles on the bottom of the rods, especially on the spod rod.
    That way the rod is easy to clean after working with spod mix.

    But Dan said he wants to try a few things, so i'm very curious what he'll come up with! cheers

    The plan Rob is that with a marker rod your hand/arm needs to be in as closer contact with the blank as possible and all the time your adding reel seats and glue your creating a cushion between you and the blank. Ideally you want the reel connected direct to the blank but this is not possible due to practicle reasons so i think i have come up with the best comprimise. Stay tuned for more details........

    Yeah i know what you mean Dan.
    You think you're going to feel less due to the cushion between blank and arm/hand.
    Now i understand why you use that special whipped on reelseat on the Revealer in the pic above.
    The carbon "bottom handles" ( What a Face ) won't be a problem on the rods i asume?

    Beach rods are generally much thicker and much more comfortable to hold than a skinny carp blank. We have done similar with our Reveler marker rod but i have found a better way to make it diret and comfortable.
