      The Best -in black !

      I have the advantage of fishing the 686 for the last few seasons, so I know this blank is the most enjoyable to cast, play fish on and "Hell" they are great just to look at. For me, this is the go to blank if I could only have one rod. Why the Black one ? Not sure really, but if your going to build a rod, you might as well build the best available ! Also, it's pretty hard to find an outfit like this one that will go the extra mile for you !

      Excellent and Prompt Customer Service

      I had originally ordered the #6 8'6" in nude, but when I saw the black friday special black blanks, I knew that was what I really wanted. Customer service promptly helped me change my order and refund the difference. Good customer service is the key to repeat business and the Swift company has that in spades.

      Gold standard for trout rods
      "I live in the northeast part of the US and, when I'm not working, I'm chasing trout on small technical streams (e.g. Mossy Creek) in the east and bigger rivers out west like the Colorado, Blue, Arkansas or South Platte. This rod, the 690 C, is exceptional for any form of trout fishing. It's my favorite performance rod and is the benchmark against which any other rod should be evaluated. It's beautifully crafted and whether I'm fishing with friends or using a guide, everyone wants to give it a go and comes away impressed. I can't say enough good things about the production quality and the customer service I've received from Swift. Keep doing what you're doing - everyone is taking notice."
