Great rod for heavy cover 3/3/2014
I prefer fishing small mountain streams and this is my first choice even though I have many much more expensive rigs. The length is perfect for weaving in and out of laurels and thickets along small streams with heavy cover and it has the backbone to handle the rare bruiser that shows up now and then. This is not a kids rod. First thing to go in the backpack next to a click and pawl loaded with classic DT line. The DT taper helps the small rod turn over roll casts and can be reversed when one end wears out. When you build it, leave off the hook keeper. Just wrap the leader around the reel and attach fly to first guide. This will keep the tip clear of the nail knot or splice between the leader and fly line so the rod will be ready for action faster.

Favorite of mine 9/12/2012
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.
