We designed this blank with steelhead fishing in mind. Living in the Great Lakes region a 10' 7wt. is perfect for many of the rivers where a full spey might be too large. The medium/fast action is excellent for indicator rigs and can even handle a nice range of tips or T14 when you need to get your flies down deep.
We chose a raw carbon finish with a semi-gloss top coat for the blank. This allows a neutral pallet that opens wide the range of hardware and thread colors that will work. Each blank ships with a silk screened rod sock and a specs. label (you can order a custom label below).
We shipped all of our new blanks to Steve Godshall, who works with the top spey and switch rod/line designers in the world. Steve put all of our blanks through the ranks and has provide custom guide spacing and line grain recommendations. We will be adding links to specific lines soon.
