Single foot vs snakes
The Dan Craft FTs are pretty nice I built 4 of them all 10' . (2) 4ts and (2) 10 wts. Used REC snakes on one of the 4wt with Fuji Titanium strippers and H&H snakes &strippers on the other. I didn't find any noticeable difference between the two rods. Ask Dan about the REC strippers he will confirm the noise issue. I was at the Salmon river clave last OCT and was fishing with someone using a LOOMIS 2hander with REC strippers. I could tell how much line he was shooting by the noise.
