The Lantern II is built on the same mandrel as the very popular Lantern blank on it features four-piece construction and a clear finish.
Our component kits are hand assembled one at a time. The tip top and metal winding checks are all double checked before anything is packed. With the Proof kits you get complete control over how the rod will look. Select: guide style and color, reel seat hardware and insert, and grip shape. You can even add a set of ferrule rings or a custom label. This kit includes the following: blank, rod sock, labels, tip top, full set of guides, hook keeper, winding check, grip, reel seat, and stint.
The Lantern is deep flexing 7' 3/4wt. fiberglass blank with tip over ferrules. The Lantern has a clean progressive action that loads deep for close-range casts with plenty of reserve power to shoot line when necessary. For those familiar with our previously offered "Amarillo" blank, the Lantern is rolled on the same mandrel only features tip over ferrules and a translucent finish.
All Proof Fly Fishing blanks come with a rod sock, two labels (one spec.) and a "Proof" medallion label (applied to the top of the blank 12-15" above the grip).
