I have two blanks left from the old Fine Tackle Progressive project. This is the first of them, and the last one is under completion. This build was appointed with a home turned wooden reel seat in myrtle wood. I received this piece of wood from a friend of mine who is a friend of Montana rod builder Marty Karstetter. I couldn't think of a more flattering provenience for a piece of wood, and it really gives a nice flavor to this rod. NS hardware and a straight Ritz grip, with stripping guide and snakes guides in chrome. This rod was made on customers order.
