I've been seeing a lot of these around in metal but recently I see where Kastking has a 9' 5wt and a 9' 8 wt graphites. Has anyone had any experience with telescoping fly rods ? Not Tenkara but real rods .

I bought a nice little add on that works with the CRB hand wrapper . Attach it with 2 small bolts and it's done.

I hate to say this but I will anyway . The main thing that keeps me from ordering from your website is lack of pictures . Half the time I dont know what I want until I see it and the other half is I dont know what the product is or looks like from the description . I'm sure you have lots of cool stuff but until I can see what I'm ordering …………………...

So like it says this is an 11' 3/4 wt build and while I have the guide placement I dont have the guide sizes . I'm thinking a 10 mm to an 8mm stripper and then 1/0 all the way out to the top . Sound about right ? TIA Ron PS: These are single foot guides and its intended use is for swinging streamers and wets .

I have a few blanks that are matt in finish however when I wrapped them they turned shiny at the guides . Is it possible to make the rest of the rod shiny with perma gloss or @#$%& ? What would be the process ? As always TIA .

I put the rod butt in the corner and then raised the tip to the ceiling until it was bending pretty good . Looked like it was a fast action to me but its so darn wimpy . I was going to do the cc thing but no where to anchor eye level or so . Thanks again guys .
