7' 9" 3wt. (four piece) carbon fiber fly rod blank

The "Proof" 7' 9" 3wt offers a true medium/fast action that excels in tight quarters and is a ton of fun when fishing for bluegills.  The blank offers excellent tippet protection and delivers accurate casts with very little effort.  The blank features a glossy green finish and comes complete with a custom silk screened rod sock and labels.  If you are looking for a shorter trout rod or a panfish rod, this blank will deliver.  

If you are familiar with and like the XI fly blanks, then the new Proof fly blanks will be very well received with a significant cost saving.  

Below you will find the rod specs. and suggested guide spacing.  We also offer a few add ons to the blank.  You can select a set of alignment dots, a custom label, and also add a complete guide kit.  

Save a few dollars on the complete component kit which includes the blank, guides, and a grip/reel seat.
