RS Revelation 8′ 6″ 5 wt

posted in: Rod Building | 0

IMG_0427This is a custom rod I recently completed. The action is at the low side of fast, throwing tight loops at close and medium ranges. Built on a Rainshadow Revelation blank, it’s very light in the hand and balanced with the stunning Alps Centra-Lock reel seat.  This is a contemporary styled rod with a 7-inch performance grip of my design made from flor grade cork tuned to promote the maximum line control through the casting stroke.  The stripping guide is a REC Recoil and the running guides are Snake Brand Universals with matching Snake Brand tip top.  The guides and ferrules are wrapped with Fuji Ultra Poly thread in black and tipped with Ultra Poly silver metallic to match the reel seat’s Texalium insert. This 5 weight has a fighting butt.

ERN  5.5 / AA 64 (moderate/fast)
