A parabolic #5 rod designed here to be an accurate, quick into action rod with enough energy to move a long line but really at home in the more fishable ranges. Type super "Z" ferrules a longer , finer tapered grip with a Cocobolo seat and 2 blued rings, 2 strippers and light wire guides. This ; the first "Capstone" model is specifically designed to reflect my personal standards-- channeling just how I see a bamboo fly rod after years of exposure.
Redwing Fly Rods 7ft 7in. 2/2, # 5 line, Hand Planed, 3.8 oz. " Long Taper parabolic". Flamed cane , blued metals, cap and ring seat over impregnated " Bloodwood', tapered cigar grip and blued type "Z" ferrules. Honey silks , red at the ferrules, light wire snake guides, Mildrum stripper. My personal taper given just a little more strength in the lower butt area for working quicker and reducing false casting.
Redwing Fly Rods 7ft. 8in. type Vario/ Skish- Cane / Glass, 2/1 ( made that way), #6 line, oil finished cane with 3x3 node spacing, open grained walnut seat, black agate stripper. A slightly staggered ferrule model ( tip 3in. longer than butt), fiberglass ferrule, , light wire guides, Young style grip for deepest energy build-up. total weight 3.5 oz. Built here for speed and accuracy , larger flies, big water, boat tactics, and much easier on the wrists after a long day, without saying. The marriage of these two materials works as the cane controls the natural bend and tempo while the lighter tip allows for the use of a lighter line and overall lighter tip feel. If one reads Charles Ritz and the theory behind these rods; they have to be tried.
The bamboo is waiting for the wind to touch it!
