WOW

2 votes for the cheepest rod in the bunch.

I specked out the G Loomis and this is what I got so far,

9" custom handle
black rubber winding check
Gold size 12 Hopkins & Holloway Stripping guide (the one used on Sage factory models)
Gold snake stripper guides for the rest (9)
Gold Tip-top
Gold Double hook-keepers
Black Silk thread
Struible Uplocking Standard reel seat in Anodized black finish and Cocobolo wood insert.

All of this on the G Loomis that is a Glossy Mahogany finish.

Using the Plufeger Supreme Fly Reel (1834) - Gold plate - just to keep the look consistent.

on a quick run down of the prices I saw, it would cost me about $228.50 for the whole thing (rod/reel/line) and if it looks 1/2 as good as it sounds, it will be very eye catching :hehe:

From what I saw for specs on the blank, it should be a nice casting rod also... Going to see what I can come up with for the other three as 'package deals' and see what I like best.

I an going to spec out the St Croix next since it got two props in here.
