This rod was built for both a shop in Montana and for myself to see if i could come up with a viable product. We have all seen the fly/spin combo before and the Daiwa executive being the old standard. The problem before was that all though they were good spinning rods they were lousy fly rods. In one of my Rodmaker magazines Tom talked about how to make a "good" combo rod. I used that info and came up with this rod. It casts a 4wt line very decently(40-50' no problem or weird casting stroke) and spin cast a lure 0f 1/16 oz-3/8 oz with ease. I used a thin wall aluminum tube to mount the handle/reel seat on and ferruled both ends. I then cut off the length of the handle on the butt section of the blank and male ferruled it. For the guide placement i used the 27x system for a 1000 series spinning reel.
