Epic Carbon Fibre Rod Blanks
« on: 11/11/2021 at 13:37 »

           I was on a new ( wish ) Web page recently (( Floating Fly .com ))......... interestingly , Bob Wyatt ((( lately of this Parish ))), Had some very interesting opinions on
              His Chum ..... Carl McNeill ..... regarding  his Carbon Fibre Rods ; both the " G " & " C"     
             As the Dollar rises ..... and , the already excessive cost of imports etc etc .....
             Any advice of purchasing one of these Kits ?     I need a 9' x 5wt. .... Medium fast rod ...... in my youth ..... many years ago ... I ringed many " fibre gals " rods

If itís a first go and you want a really good rod at the end of it.
These are superb rods/kits
