    Ok here is a donation rod I recently built. I have build a few of these (Rainshadow Elite IM7 kit) and they are really a nice rod.

    Action is medium fast. The cork is not the best and the reel seat is not the best looking (but seems to be very good). The rod is incredibly lite and really casts nice. For the price of the kit it is a great value.
    I build a 8' 3pc 4wt on a rainshadow blank and I was surprised how nice of a rod it was. Medium/medium fast and just had a great feel to it.
