Detailed Description

This kit is all top notch! If purchased separately, these would cost well over $170! Included are the New H&H "Xi" 6'6" 4-piece stream blank, one piece "pre-drilled" cork seat/grip combination, so there's very little reaming necessary. Nickel silver winding check and chrome plated guides and tip top. Threads and glues sold separately. This is a special buy! Glossy green blank.

Such a fun little rod with loads of capability 6/2/2020
I built this kit about a year and a half ago and have used it a fair bit on small streams with heavy vegetation in southwest WI. I absolutely love fighting fish on such light gear - makes everything feel like a trophy! The build was very straight forward. Anyone on the fence about attempting this should do it. Tons of info online and the guys at H&H are super responsive and helpful if you find yourself needing some guidance. The only thing I would change on the rod would be that the action is a bit fast. It casts accurately and has a lot of backbone for such a small rod, but I suspect that a slightly lazier action would make it a tad more forgiving in the casting department. Im contemplating putting a 3wt line on it and seeing if that improves it, but definitely will continue to fish it regardless. Landed over 20 fish the other evening including a 17 brown on 6X tippet and the rod took it like a champ.

Just what I needed 9/15/2017
I built this kit for the small brushy streams I fish and paired it with a Wulff TT 2wt WF line. I casts nicely in places I couldnt cast with a longer rod and has sufficient backbone to handle 12 browns. Lots of fun to fish with.
Great Rod 9/6/2016
I just finished building this rod and caught my first fish on it last night. It was the first rod that I have built and it was not difficult to assemble, at all. I highly recommend getting one if this is the size and weight rod you are looking for.

Dont hesitate 8/1/2013
An excellent value. Extremely packable, the rod bag weighs almost as much as the rod. Cork quality was outstanding. Had a slight problem with the tip top too small for the blank. One email was all it took and a replacement was in my hands in two days, no charge. Who else does that? Seriously, What are you waiting for????? Order It!

Wow! All I can say is WOW! 11/21/2012
After just $75 and a few hours work, I now have an Xi 2-weight that is sensational for native brookies and panfish. Dont forget to order glues/threads if you dont already have them.

Awesome Xi Kit 11/21/2012
This is by far one of the best small stream kits ever for a 2wt rod. I build this kit and everyone that sees it is truly amazed by it. Its super lightweight and cast even better...
