Anyone have a Green Hornet?
« on: December 18, 2010, 07:57:07 PM »
Does anyone have a pattern to cut the handle for a "Green Hornet"?

I have always wanted to build one and have looked around the net for a pattern and have only seen some good examples that I could go by but no patterns. 

I have thought that it would be funny to have a couple of these and pull it out to go fishin' with when I am with some of my buddies.  I figured that it would be a good laugh if it wasn't a good fishing rod.

A lot of guys make these and sell them on ebay.  It looks like a pretty simple pattern.  I think most of them charge about 20$ for them.   Problem is most of the young guys probably would not know what it was. :whistling:

        General,  do us all a favor an do NOT replace the batteries in those screaming tip ups you have.  Every time those sirens go off guys are tossing their extra rods down the hole and half the restaurants on the lake lose their cooks.    It would be different if you actually landed anything.   :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

It's been a while since I've posted.  Went home to OK for Christmas.  When I was there I watched the movie several times pausing it in the places where you could see the green hornet and came up with a pattern.  I will snap a few pictures and post them.

They used to have the actual pole at Cabela's, Gander, or Sportsmans.  I can't remember which one though.

I make them and sell them for $25.  I've got an ad posted on c-list.  They're not hard to make, but the paint job is time consuming (I put on 4-5 coats) and rod tips are fairly expensive because I have to go buy the cheapest ice rods I can find and cut the handles off them.  If anyone knows where to get old rod tips I could use without having to buy a whole new rod, the price would probably go down.
