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 Meadow II features spigot ferrules, a three piece construction, and a dark olive translucent finish. It throws a 3 or a 4wt line beautifully. The action is progressive and loads smooth from the tip to just below the middle of the blank. The tip is nicely balanced for both accuracy and protecting very lite tippet.
Each Meadow blank comes with a rod sock and a set of labels (spec. labels and a cigar label featuring the Proof logo). You can add a custom label, hand fit ferrule rings, and alignment dots below.
Line weight: 3/4
All Proof Fly Fishing blanks come with a custom silk screened rod sock, two labels (one spec.) and a "Proof" medallion label (applied to the top of the blank 12-15" above the grip).
