My first attempt at morticed inserts which create a dramatically swelled butt.  This one features twelve pieces of cane frtom about 4" above the cork grip.... since it was an experiment, I experimented with wraps and reel seat too.

I re-wrapped this rod about two years ago, and installed a new reel seat while I was at it..  Here are a few more current pictures.  The seat on the bottom is this rod.
