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 Salamander 4wt. 7' 6" fiberglass blank features a medium/fast smooth progressive action and quick tip recovery. The Salamander features spigot ferrules, a nice compact 3 piece design, and a translucent tangerine orange. The Salamander is made from continuous filament E-glass. I have been fishing the Salamander with both a DT 4wt. line and a DT 5wt. and both work great. I Like a little extra line weight when fishing open water, but prefer the lighter 4wt for small streams. The tippet protection is outstanding and the rod loads beautifully.
Each Salamander blank comes with a custom silk screened rod sock and a set of labels (spec. labels and a cigar label featuring the Proof logo). Please see below for guide spacing.
