Recent build for a repeat customer, a CTS Quartz 864-4 in Tea.

The owner of this build also has the CTS Quartz 863-4 in Tea, basically this 4wt is a twin to the 3.

This build features a Lemke LC-1 with a Cocobolo Burl insert, Modified Western Grip (both grip and insert are shop turned). Struble Agate, Snake Brand Universals and matching Tip Top. All hardware is Black Nickel. Wrapped with Fuji Poly Garnet, which is very close match to the old Gudebrod Garnet.

The CTS Blanks now feature a new ferrule system, while I am not thrilled with the look, according to CTS, it will allow for more of a "positive" ferrule seat. Not that I ever heard an issue in the past with their ferrules. It is not a Spigot system either, just with out paint.







Thanks for checking it out.

Great color coordination with the agate, reel seat insert, and thread. Nice build.

Bill...you really have a talent for bringing out the best in blanks with your component and thread choices. Nice grip shape as well.
