G'Day Nealez,

Rohan at Bluewater Morley made me up a custom 760l a couple of months ago. This rod is awesome on sambo's. Good strong feel and you can really give it a bit of 'come here'.

Can call around and look at it if you like, but it will have to be in about 12 days as I'm off to Exmouth tomorrow morning.

John

Had one myself built up and got one recommendation, chop 6inches off the bottom of the blank. Brings the load point closer to your body and makes it alot more comfortable to fish with..
