This one is a 7'6" 1wt 2pc which is a one off blank (prototype) so only one of its kind. Very smooth casting 1wt with a snub nose grip (owner requested). Dark green wraps with metallic silver trim and wood seat set in nickle silver hardware.

If you want to make a panfish feel like a tarpon, this may be the way to go.
