NFC GAMMA BETA F 1090-1

I am curious if anyone out here fishes an NFC F 1090-1, or any similar one piece rods made by NFC. If so I’d like to hear some pros and cons. I don’t care to travel with it, I have another 10 that I would use for plane travel. Thanks in advance.

Hey Tyler, I don't know, but I'd love to hear from someone who has experience with this blank. Looks like an awesome blank. I wish there were more 2-piece options...seems like every mid range and up fly blank is a 4 piece. Honestly, there are times I'd be tempted to deal with the inconvenience of a one piece over the added weight and additional ferrules of a four-piece. I almost never fly with my fly rods and if I did, I'd just build a 4-piece travel rod.

Abe, I’ll be sure to keep you in the loop, I myself am a northeast angler and drive basically everywhere to fish, and I have rod tubes on my vehicle for transport which made the decision a little easier to go with the 1 piece stick. Hopefully by spring time I’ll be slinging flies
