The Drake is a 8' 5wt. fiberglass blank that features a smooth progressive action and quick tip recovery.  The Drake features tip over ferrules, a nice compact 4 piece design, and a medium brown finish.  The Drake is made from continuous filament E-glass.  I have been fishing the Drake with a DT 5wt. line with dry flies and it loads beautifully.  You can also overline the rod with a 6wt. for heavier streamer fishing.  The tippet protection is outstanding and the rod loads smooth and even.  

This kit can be customized with the drop down menus to the right.  You can select the grip, reel seat hardware, reel seat insert, and guide set color.  The guide set comes complete with a hand fit tip top, full set of guides, stripping guide, hand fit winding check, and a hook keeper.  You can also select from a number of optional add ons like a custom label.
