Thread: The Pink Flamingo

  1. #1

    Default The Pink Flamingo

    I have always admired some of the pink rods that have surfaced on the net and wondered what I would do should I get the chance to do a pink rod.

    Well last year I received a TXL-F in the mail and the brief was simple......Make it Pink.

    Quick Specs:

    Blank: TXL-F 2710-4B painted pink with a hint of pearl
    Thread: Soft Pink/Violet Nylon to blend in with blank
    Guides: TiCh Holographic Stripper and TiCh snakes and Tip Top
    Grip: Palmgrip with Light Gunsmoke Anodized sliding band and hood
    Tube: Same pink as rod with Cherry Blossom Wrap in Silver and Light Gunsmoke Engraved endcaps of my own design.

    I treated the rod and tube with a matte clear as per my Heron spec, just to take the flash down a bit and turn it into a satin finish. This eliminated those fingerprints you always see on a gloss surface on a rod tube.
