They say one man's trash is another man's treasure. Steve strikes again, this is another of his builds. Got a call from my old buddy about 6 months back about building a few rods cheap from old stock laying around. Couple of rods originally purchased from a little shop out of New Jersey that were old and beat up. He said they'd be for sharking, and would hold anywhere from 50w's to 80's, but preferably 80 wide size reels.
The original plan was to build them as customer rods, but as the build went on, I realized these were going to become my new Unlimited class shark rods for anything from Shortfin Mako's to Tigers, and would hold the biggest reels made with the highest test line practicable.
