The perfect rod for travel, backpacking, camping, or just about any situation where space is at a premium.  The "Proof" 9' 5wt. (seven piece) travel rod offers a medium/fast action (a bit closer to fast than medium).  The blank features a glossy green finish, custom silk screened rod sock, and labels.   If you are looking for an excellent trout rod with the convince of 7 pieces, then look no further!

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.
