    Really nice work.   The prod lashing cord seems a bit 'overkill' -- thicker than need be -- but maybe that's just me.

    I did some research on the prod maker.  
    the creator is Robin knight.  and sold his stuff through arbalist armory.  (Nick winter) that site is now offline. 
    i bought the prod about 10 years ago and came across it by chance last year.
    then I started collecting materials and knowledge.  

    and this is the end result.
