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, spacing card, tip top, full set of guides, hook keeper, winding check, grip, reel seat, and stint.  

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 component kit comes complete with the following: rod blank, rod sock, spec. label, tip top, full set of guides, hook keeper, winding check, grip and reel seat.  You can select the components with the dropdown boxes above.  Guide spacing can be found below.
