686 Black special edition
Great service !! but i havent actually seen it yet cause my lovely wife brought it for my birthday wich is in the middle of next month ! Cant wait cheers Budgie
Stunning fly rod
High quality and excellent assembly, next season will be black.This rod meets all my expectations. First time you fish with , it seems you rediscover flyfishing.
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.
