found a great find at a garage sale Saturday, it's a 5'6" BPS Pro Comp II, one guide was bent that's fixed and it needed a new top eyelet took about 5 minutes to fix it up.

and all finished up, the white circles are where the guy painted 1" increments on it.

Now for the best part cost me $2 for the rod!!!!!!!! I already had a bunch of tips and the glue.

I'd love to see a 3 lb crappie on that little rod, it would be on the wall PDQ!!!!!!! biggest I've ever caught was a little under 2 and that was back in NY where I grew up. I'll get down south someday for those big ones!!!!!!
