Picked up a 6wt blank on sale and built this with a few components I already had in a drawer. Hard to show the translucent blues of the blank in the photos. Even has a blue graphite insert in the reel seat although it appears more blue green. My photos don't do it justice.
I'm more partial to faster actions and this rod is more of a full flex. I'll probably put it up for sale.
I'm sure Mike will like it especially with the blue stripper guides.
