    Hi friends,

    Thought some of you might enjoy checking this out. I started a kick starter to have a custom rolled blank made (9' 5wt.). The design is original and based on data collected from over 150 surveys from rod builders from across the globe.

    Still 8 days left in the kick stater if anyone is interested. Here is the link:

    Would you put the action in the realm of classic graphite i.e. G series, WT, etc?

    Great question. Always hard to say exactly. I am a huge fan of the Scott G2 and the Aurora I reminds me of that.
