13' 7/8wt. (four piece) carbon fiber spey blank and component kit
The new Proof 13' 7/8wt. spey kit features a medium/fast action blank that is capable of delivering your fly great distances while the extra reach makes mending line and controlling the drift much easier than a shorter rod. The spey configuration is great when fishing close to the blank or when you want to give your shoulder a rest.
This kit comes with top of the line components to complete the build. The kit includes the following:
-Spey blank (with silk screened rod sock and spec. label)
-Atlas spey reel seat with double lock nut
-Premium spey grip (custom bored for the blank)
-Full set of Snake brand guides
-custom fit winding check, tip top, and stripping guides
We chose a raw carbon finish with a semi-gloss top coat for the blank. This allows a neutral pallet that opens wide the range of hardware and thread colors that will work. Each blank ships with a silk screened rod sock and a specs. label (you can order a custom label below).
We shipped all of our new blanks to Steve Godshall, who works with the top spey and switch rod/line designers in the world. Steve put all of our blanks through the ranks and has provide custom guide spacing and line grain recommendations. We will be adding links to specific lines soon.
