Default Re: Rod Love; the Fly Rod Picture Thread

One of my newest builds... The rod is built on a no name 12' 7wt 4pc spey blank, since I don't do any spey fishing I decided to try it out as a 3pc 9' 9wt rod. The action is prtty fast but not broom stick fast and cast a outbound 9wt line(375gr) great. The blank has a very nice olive color that looks very similar to the GLoomis CC rods. I was so happy with the rod tha I'm building one for a buddy for his birthday and a second for myself. The best part of it is I am getting the blank kit wit all the components for $65 plus what ever the handle I choose to use costs. Just plain black wraps I've not ventured into the fancy stuff yet, I'm just happy to get the finish on the guides without getting a bunch of bubbles in it.
