I finished building the twin ultralight rods for my gilrs. They wanted blue rods so I used a couple of 2003 model Forecast blanks. These blamks were not blue enough so I painted them. It was an extra step but it really came out great. The girls picked out all of the components and I had a great time building these rods. Micah chose lime green metallic wraps and Sloane chose rainbow metallic wraps.
