It's nice T&T is back in the game and will roll you a custom/out of stock blank. Their 13' 7wt, DH 1307-3 is one sweet stick.

Hi Lynch and welcome to the forum.

I should have the blank here any day now. I talked to T&T and they had already started rolling it. I have even started making grip parts already. I have the reel on the way to. Got a Tibor Pacific QC Saltwater Fly Reel for 12, 13, 14 wt. It's a giant heavy beast. I love it.

Wow, what a reel! Is that 5.5" in diameter or even bigger? Great color as well.

It's about 5 1/2". It's for 13/14/15wt.!! I also found a US dealer for the Carron Jetstrean long belly line I'm putting on it. The Red Shed fly shop. I was thinking about how to do it from Scotland and thought I'd check the Red Shed just in case, because Poppy lives and breaths all things spey. He has it.

I got the all the parts ordered, the new reel for it, and even the new line for it. I got the Carron Jetstream with a 95' head. YeeeeHaaaaaw! I'm going to put an ad in the paper over in Rainy River, Ontario that for safety reasons they should wear protective eye wear when standing on the river bank.
