Dear Rodbuilders,

ALL of our FAF (Fast Action Fly) FASW (Fast Action Switch) FASY (Fast Action Spey) and Iconoglass blanks are in stock! (We have built up an inventory of several hundred per model as part of a partnership to support Project Healing Waters and the awesome work they do with vets)

That means if you are looking to build a fly rod (or three) they would ship quickly! (They are also on sale)

Thanks for looking.

Aleks

NFC has apparently changed their mind and renewed their sponsorship , I still don't see their name on the sponsorship list yet but it must be coming since you cannot post about company products or advertise in any way unless you're a sponsor . Smart move to come back .

Chris,

I replied to this in the other NFC thread. You don’t have to worry about NFC “abandoning” the rod building community Our roots and history are deeply intertwined with the custom rod builder. It’s not easy to make blanks in the USA - and there are not many factories left - and none that sell directly to the rod builder. We see an incredible revival of builders buying American made products - not just in the US, but in Asia (We opened a sales office in Korea this year, and have had one in Japan for a number of years) - We are glad to be a part of the RBO community and believe in the mission and vision.

One of our customers emailed us and mentioned that the NFC link was gone on the menu - I wrote an email to Tom right away and looked in our spam folders for renewal emails - the rest is history.

I know how important it is to keep companies who manufacture blanks in the USA thriving , I need no convincing . I as many others were disappointed to not see NFC on the sponsors list for a while that's all , it really appeared that you guys left us . I'm thrilled that you did not and are back better than ever . Thank you for the confirmation and please keep the info about new happenings coming .
