One of the new fibreglass blanks from Dusty Smith at Livingston Rod Co in Montana. The rod is very light at 98 grams (3.46 oz.) and has a smooth crisp action.
The blank is translucent white natural finish and the tape ridges have not been sanded smooth. The reel seat is a dark chrome aluminium Snake Brand up-locking seat with a beautiful figured Brown Mallee insert. The stripper ring is a Mildrum tungsten low bridge while all other rings are Snake Brand Universals in dark chrome.
The whippings are French antique silk in green/olive which gives a nice textured translucent colour.
A very nice looking rod for larger streams and rivers but with sufficient power for the evening rise on the lakes.
