    as Carphooker states, they offer a try before you buy service. Meet them, try a few rods and decide which actualy suits you.

    Fantastic guys. Looked at a couple of their blanks first.

    I got a set of R1fts build and they are lovely.

    Couldn't recommend them enough

    Fast taper....which TC ?? their R1 FT ( fast taper ) likely perfect unless you want an absolute mong stick. If you do, seriously, look at the Babylon Odessy 13ft 3 3/4tc. stonking casting rod.
