Bought the rod at Jo-Ann's and stained it with Old English Polish because I didn't have any stain, and then rubbed it with a wire brush to remove the shine.
The leather is just some scraps from a leather store that I soaked in water and wrapped around the rod. Then I put on one coat of red dye - I'll be putting on another to make it darker.
Whatís kind of annoying me is that after getting the wrapping nice and tight and secure, I realize itís wrong. Itís actually tied on at the top and I didnít realize that before because in the customization menu sheís holding it right on the tie. >.> I just have to keep reminding myself that itís okay, I donít need it 100% the same and probably no one will notice. As long as I can round of the ends of the rod so it doesnít look like, well a rod and looks like a spear Iím fine.
