    Built this for a friend to give as a gift.
    Cabalas PT+ 9' 5wt blank (made by St. Croix)
    H&H stripper guides, snake guides and tip top
    Struble flor grade grip
    Struble N/S winding check
    Alps N/S reel seat with a teak Struble insert
    olive Prowrap thread (no cp) with gold trim
    Feather inlay

    Turned out nice. I did get a little wave over the feather inlay, but still looks nice.

    This is a medium action blank and very smooth. It just seems easy to cast and you can feel the rod load. So for a beginner I think this will be a good rod.
