Testimonials: Here are just a few!
Ron , Just want all of you at Hook & Hackle to know that I purchased a Classic Action 7-8 weight for bonefish to use at the world famous El Pescador Lodge, Belize. I caught so many Bonefish I stopped counting after 20. Great rod and a joy to cast more than able to take on the challenge .

"I KNOW you won't tell me who designs/makes your fly rods (I do), BUT I have to say, they definitely know what they're doing. I just had the 9' 5/6 wt 4 piece rod out and continue to be amazed at its performance. it makeseffortless full line casts with a WF 6 ... man, that works for me!!!!!"

Your Xi blanks and kits have been my favorite since their introduction. Unfortunately, your introduction of the Xi "finished rods" gives my "non rod building friends" an fishing advantage I was hoping to keep for myself! Darn.

Ron: I just wanted you and the folks at H&H know that you do an amazing job. I just finished building this kit that I ordered a few weeks ago and cast it for the first time the other day and it is just ridiculous. I have never cast a more perfect little 3WT for streams. It throws fast tight loops with just enough back bone that I think I'd feel comfortable throwing hoppers in the wind on this little stick. It casts so incredibly accurate that you just point and shoot.
Ron, Thanx so much for the advise on the blank (Xi 9' 6-weight). I love it and it casts extremely well. My casts are more precise when I want them to be. This blank is no coward, plenty of back bone! My first fish was a 16" large mouth.
Thanx Again, Alex B., Maryland.
