Pink Panther (7’6” 3/4 weight – 2 piece)


I built this rod for my granddaughter.  Got the blank from Roger Penrose on e-bay, used metallic purple thread, guides are single foot, ceramic inserts from Angler’s Roost, reel seat is from Mudhole. This was the third rod I had built, so it came out pretty good.  I found a reel (Okuma 3/4) one day at Goodwill, very lucky, it was almost brand new. Had some DT4F line that worked perfectly, so she is now outfitter very well.
