This is a wee 10ft 7weight but it's a 7 piece so basically can fit up your sleeve.
I put a screw butt cap on it that can be removed and I can fit the wee fighting butt to it. I'm waiting on 4" butt posts arriving and will make up a matching one for this rod so I can turn it from a 10ft single hander into a 10'4" switch rod. Its got a nice softer action to it. Hoping it will be my wee lucky Irish grilse rod.
I've used mainly flor grade natural cork for the handle.
