Wow, pretty unreal what they're doing. I saw some rods with snakeskin above the foregrip in place of a decorative wrap. They took it to the next level with the head of the snake on there!

I wonder what kind of $ their rods go for. My guess is $500 in addition to the cost of the blank and components.

Just saw the video and I can't thank you guys enough! That must of taken a lot of work.It was a total suprise to me! David Rosenthal from California is by far the best photographer I have ever had the pleasure to meet! Then Dave from armbreaker custom rods in Florida put the video together with Davids pictures and WOW! Fishing Never looked so good! These guys are of high caliber and full of class! Hope you get a chance to fish with them too! :D

Welcome to WCA Mike!

It was great to meet & fish with you on this trip. I have to admit that those sticks are some of the coolest that I have ever seen.

Hopefully you will chime in here and ask any questions you may have or give advice to others seeking advice.

We will talk soon.

Best Photoprapher you have ever met??? Dude, you have not even come close. Wait till you meet me 8) As Dave can attest! The only problems I have with my photopgraphic skills are these:

1) Cutting off the tail of the fish
2) Not taking enough
3) Having the shakes from the happy hour the night before (thus the hair on the dog.)
4) And the biggest of them all..... Not posting them! :P

Actually Mike you are correct, David does an outstanding job!

Congratulations on a fantasitc fish.
Welcome to the WCA website!
