    I have a big monitor and I can't see that pic. What were you trying to do? Make that fish appear bigger? ;D

    Re: Lone Ranger's custom made fishing rods make me

    there are enough people on various message boards that have waited (patiently) and have had my rods for some time now that I dont need to do demo rods. ;)



    I am however building a 40-80# standup rod that I am planning on giving to various captains for feedback on.

    very kind words, I appreciate it. Threshes rod is about as basic as they get, no "pretty" stuff involved, its all about performance.

    Yeah I got the hot rod model: No weight - black w/black guide gel and titanium guides. Dy-no-mite. The difference between the stock G-loomis and the LR G-loomis is stunning. I would bet you there is a 30% weight difference.

    come July I will have an opening to build a couple of customs~

    If your interested send me a PM or an e-mail @ LoneRangerNPanda@aol.com


    If you want to ask about my rods send a pm to: AC Lockyer, Joe Welborne, Thresher, Zero Gravity, or anyone else that has handled and or fished with any of them- I can build what you want for as much money as you want to spend.  ;)

  10. I gota say, I had LR do me a super custom 6-6 med light US Graphite rod simple simple but made for super light soft plastic presentations. It is so light and so very accurate it has really spoiled me.

    Threshers new rod is simply awesome. still very simple and not flashy but it makes rusty ole thresher home from Texas cast very accurately. Its amazing what $200.00 plus does to a rod :eek:

    But once you have had one its amazing.

    The two rods helped us to an 18th place out of 131 boats this weekend.

    build time varies on my work load which currently is pretty high. 2 rods have taken up my open spots, and with the move to the new house in 3 weeks its not looking good. best bet is to give me a call or a pm (since I dont have a cell! LOL) and I can give you more specific information.


    thanks!
