Before you buy a glass rod, check out "Tightloopflyrods" website. George is one of, if not the most talented rod builders I have come across. He builds a beautiful Kabuto white and also Epic nude that you would give your eye teeth to have. Price is reasonable for a custom made rod, especially when you look at what they are asking for in factory made graphite today. His site is full of pictures of his builds of a variety of blank manufacturers, dating back several years. I was so impressed that I have ordered a white Kabuto 764-3 and if it is half the rod that I think it is, I will be after another E-glass rod before the end of the year. Well worth the wait IMHO.
