This is a truly unique rod that was completed yesterday. The blank was developed by me together with a premium glass manufacturer, but the project came to a dead end due to finishing problems. I managed to order a last batch with the color and finish I wanted, before I decided not to proceed. I have four blanks in stock, and this is the first of these four. It's a 7'9'', 5wt with a smooth but powerful progressive action. It has a bamboo like action, without getting wimpy or tip heavy. This rod was appointed with my own up-locking hardware in aluminum, grey rubber butt plate and a 6'' Ritz grip. Chrome guides wrapped with YLI silk, and two rounds of epoxy. The rod will be offered through www.alternativetackle.com in the near future.
