 We designed this blank with steelhead fishing in mind.  Our 11' 8wt. offers plenty of power to turn over sink tips in cover where a full spey might be too large.   The medium/fast action is excellent for indicator rigs and can handle a nice range of tips when you need to change things up to accommodate different runs.    

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 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.  Please see below for line weight range:

Scandi line: 450-530

Skagit: 470-550
