Full Duplon handle (details)
Rather less traditional is the minimalist handle I've been asked to fit on a set of Baitblasters. It's not a handle that is always feasible, much depends on the blank diameter in relation to the reel seat diameter, or aesthetically pleasant for similar reasons. On a relatively thick blank like the BB350 it works and looks well. The butt end is finished with an equally minimal piece of Japanese shrink tube and a stainless steel button. To maintain the pared down look I've used my Reduced Graphics.
DPS-B and not much else!
Japanese Shrink Tube and Stainless Steel
I've some other unusual stuff on the go and will try to post photos of them as they near completion.
