    The rod is built from a custom blank Dan Craft made for me. It is based on his FTL 9' 6wt 6pc blank with a custom extra butt section to make it a 10' 4" 6/7wt 7pc travel rod. The rod has a CCS ERN = 6.76 AA = 68 so it is a medium fast-fastish heavy 6wt or light 7wt rod depending on your tastes.


    Completed 10’4” 6wt Rod weighs 4.54 ounces. Longest section is 19-1/2" long.

    Custom turned 6-3/4” long Full Wells Grip and 1-1/2” Fighting Butt from ¼” thick 5 Star grade cork. New ALPS RA701L2 reel seat from Batson.

    Fuji BLNAG double Foot Alconite Stripping and Taming guides in butt sections. Size 4 Snake Brand Universal Guides in Dark Nickel finish for running guides and a extra large TiCh Tip Top from Amtak. There are fish measure wraps at 20" and 24". I went heavy duty on this rod so it weighs a but more than most of my typical builds but still well in line with similar 10' and longer 6-7wt rods with fighting butts.

    This rod will make someone here a fantastic Steel-head rod that can be packed into motorcycle saddle bags, day packs, etc.

    Please email me at renegade@marcuslocke.com if you are interested in it.

    I recently purchased a custom build DanCraft from Marc and I can say that his workmanship is absolutely top notch. If I could justify the purchase and use of this rod I'd do it in a heartbeat. You won't be disappointed.
