I finished out a couple of the blanks Dusty sent to me. Interesting and worth trying out for sure. I built a 9ft 4wt & a 9ft 6wt both 3 piece.

Always appreciate your attention to details; from the trim rings to great looking reel seats and hardware.

Shane,

Teaming up with Dusty just isn't fair to GrayWolf addicts!

The hook is in my mouth and I'm turning away...

How do you describe the action, casting of the 6wt? I'm actually thinking 4 or 5wt.

Not fair indeed, and I just could not separate the two and purchased both.

Both rods are just amazing to cast. The six weight really surprised me. An initial wiggle and I was sure it would not have the power of my other 6wt, I was wrong.
Very light and more of a full flex than I’m used to. Though really appreciate.

Dusty may have to weigh in on the casting characteristics.
