    Sage TCX 8119 build

    So my foot is not healing as quick as I optimistically anticipated and am not as mobile as I had hoped. I am pretty much confined to a chair 98% of the time. Fortunately, I have a ton of rod blanks in the closet to build, so I have moved onto my next rod, which I hope to use in about 4 weeks fishing for steelhead.

    Being a fan of the 2 handed rod and absolutely loving the Sage TCX series of rods, I purchased everything I needed a few weeks back and started the build on Thursday, starting with the cork and reel seat. I did go with a premade cork, but decided to use the lathe feature on my power wrapper and shaped the grip a little more how I like them to be. I am pleased with the outcome and feel comfortable enough to turn my own cork on my next build, most likely on a cheaper Pacific Bay blank in case I run into a few problems.

    I am 85% complete with the build on the TCX already. I have complete most of the wraps, with only 2 guides to go and a ferrule wrap. Next is the feather inlay and color preserving it. Final step is the 2 night process of applying the finish epoxy.

    Here are a few pictures of my progress.

    Looks great Lynch,
    The only thing I would do is move your signature wrap a little further from the grip.
    it looks like your crowding the rod inscription.
    but what do I know Im only a Boo guy

    Good point. My intention is to do a feather inlay above the signature wrap with a small wrap above it and don't want to epoxy too far up the butt section. Plan on doing it today, will post a picture.

    I buy most of my components and kits from Anglers Habitat. They have the best prices out there and will also change any of their kit items to what you like. If you break it down item for item, they cannot be beat and it's all top quality stuff. I have never had any issues with anything I have bought, or traded in with them.

    I just finished laying down my feather inlay. It's kind of different. I used a dyed guinea feather with a jungle eye over the top. Once I apply the epoxy this next weekend, I'll post it up.
