7' med. fast, 3oz. lure weight. The blanks painted red then cleared with mauve red pearl, a touch of gold pearl and red candy.
6.5' two piece medium heavy extended to 8', Alps triangular reel seat with solid titanium guides. The blank has been painted green then dusted with a shimmer green pearl and clear coated with green candy. The casting distance of this rod is ridiculous.
This is a 6.5' casting rod painted brown then cleared with two coats, the first mixed with gold pearl and the second with 1/2 as much shimmer green pearl. It really looks nice in the sunlight and goes well with the thread colors.
