This rod is built on what is my opinion the perfect length of blank for fishing any river or stream along Steelhead Alley. 9’6” seems to be the do-all happy medium that we have found, although some prefer longer or shorter. This rod is a 2 PC MHX blank, although I have limited experience building these I was very impressed with this blanks power and action. The customer requested that a Rainbow Trout Skin decal be placed between the split grip handle, which was turned out of some excellent quality cork from Custom Fly Grips.
The Reel Seat is SZ 17 Graphite Hardware with a Green Box Elder Burl insert that was custom turned and polished. Guides are the Fuji K system transitioning to the running guides for optimum casting distance and performance. In my opinion the K guide system is the absolute best option there is. Forest Green Purple and some metallic trimbands accentuate the guides and stand out wonderfully on the dark blank.
