Lovely true 1wt blank. I have not finished building, but casted/fished it with taped guides. First of all, on the "common cents" system, the ERN (effective rod number) was 1.04 based on my measurements, so this is a true 1wt. I cast it with the green WF1F line available here on getbent. Nice smooth casting with a size 14 dry. Very delicate landing. Accurate out to 30-40 feet. Handled a bit of a breeze with no problem. Caught an 8 inch bluegill and 11 inch largemouth. Both of those fish put a deep deep bend into this rod and were great fun. Great blank at a great price.
Fished with the finished rod. Used a WF2F Airflow Elite line. It casts excellent.
Just finished building it. Seems good.. Very light.
