The rod was ordered on Sunday Got a estimated delivery date of Friday. But on Thursday go an email saying the rod would be delivered that morning and at 10:00 the DHL delivered the rod. Maybe it has something to do with the international date line but whatever that was fast service. I have made a lot of rods so I know that glued up cork hands are a pain in the ass to ream and take a lot of masking tap. But as advertised this handle was reamed for a perfect feet so that is 80% of pre-guides work done. Now I have to get it done.
This was my first rod build and I'm totally hooked on the entire process. Don't hesitate to try it out. I took the 890C out for a test cast this morning and was blown away! It's light and crisp in the hand with loads of feel for close casts and plenty of reserve power for distance. Super accurate and responsive to changes in my cast. I was able to put the fly on target like a laser. Love at first cast :) I'm really looking forward to dropping flies in front of tailing bonefish this winter with this rod. It will be a great setup for lighter presentations to striped bass on the flats too.
Am so excited about this company and products. Ordered the rod kit working with a master builder (John Miao - Chicago - look him up!)). It arrived very promptly, packaged nicely. The manual is extensive and detailed. The product itself looks to be very high quality and everything is in order. Box serves as building stand. This is such fun!
Bought this rod to supplement my 8wt Scott Meridian and was blown away. The build was pretty straight forward for my first rod and turned out pretty decent. I may touch up my wraps one more time, but all in all pretty good for my first time. As for casting. Sweet, Smooth action and extremely accurate from 40-70'. Didn't try many shots mush farther do to a hill behind me limiting my back cast, but never felt overloaded. Should be a great bonefish rod!
