Leiderman Rods Kabuto 7643 Build

Are you tired of seeing white Kabuto Rods blank builds yet?  Just when I think that I might be I come across another stunning build.

Matt Leiderman of Leiderman Rods used his Christmas break wisely and finished up several builds including this 7'6" four weight for a customer.  Beautiful work as always.

Matt wrote...  " it's a little different but I freakin' love this rod.  I wish it was mine but alas, it's off to a new owner very soon.  Seat is stabilized and dyed tiger maple.  Silk wraps are slate blue which match the seat well.  A few antique gold tippings are placed on the rod which tie into some similar colorations in the seat wood.  Have I mentioned I love building white Kabuto Rods blanks? Thanks Yasuyuki Kabuto!"
