Beautiful blank from CTS house in translucent Tea colour (one of my favourite colours) and black signature on my request.
The look of the rod is classic and sober, even a little vintage "which for me is always in fashion".
For the spacer I used a very prestigious circassian from Eastern Europe.
The hardware is brass, smooth and blued in my lab with a special technique used for the restoration of antique weapons in order to obtain a very aged look, I also added a black POM inlay inserted in the butt cap.
The guides are by ''Snake Brand'' and the brown agate stripping guide is made by Ernest Czeladz of ''Perfect Agate''.
Wraps made of gold-coloured Japanese silk and black tip complete the assembly.
This rod has a pleasant and comfortable action, classic of the fiberglass but at the same time has a considerable reserve of power.

Many Thanks for Watching,
Paolo

This has to be some of the finest work/art I've seen on a fishing forum.
