Another great Job from Nuno 8) I sent him a M4 Evo blank and asked him to build a rod with a Celtic theme. The only other thing I asked him was to include the name of my 2 boys which he put on the leather hand grip. I'm delighted with the finished rod it's a work of art that still has all the durability and looses none of the performance of a standard build. Nuno is a master of his craft and a gentleman to deal with.

The custom rods are like tattoos now Rory, I'm a bit addicted. No Jinky but Henrick was pretty good too :)
