My Hand Wrapped Sage RPLX 10wt Striper Fly Rod

A few months before Stoddard's downtown closed, I picked up this blank for short money, it must have been sitting there for a while as the RPLXi had been in production for quite some time. The RPLX is an absolute gun of a flyrod, and although some people complain that they are too stiff, I find it easy to cast and it will easily throw a Teeny shooting head line across the jetties in Menemsha. I am really pleased with the way it turned out, the copper and black thread really sets off the lovely deep brown of the blank.
