This is a beautiful Japanese-made blank, by Mr. Kazutomo Ijuin, in translucent black.
It's one of the most beautiful blanks I've ever assembled. It has a fantastic action! Power combined with sensitivity.
A great taper by Tomo-san.
The look of the rod is classic, clean and essential, with warm colours, as requested.
I have used a beautiful conifer burl and an extremely light and clean hardware with a black POM accent, created from my own design and made entirely in my workshop, to give it a vintage touch.
The snake guides are by "Snake Brand" in Light Wire and the "Mildrum" stripping guide makes the rod really classic.

Many Thanks for Watching.
Paolo
