Ed Herbst - Orvis Superfine Touch 1wt
« on: November 26, 2012, 01:37:44 PM »
It's been a while since I posted a rod here.

Blank : Orvis Superfine Touch 1wt 7'6 Full Flex
Guides : Pacbay Ultra Lite Black Snakes
Wraps : Black Silk
Grip : Palmgrip with Sliding Band
Rod Specs : Silver instead of gold as per the original
Rod Tube : Black with Silver Caps and Detail

Rod Finished off with a matte clear coat for a bit of anti glare/shine.














 :tkx: for looking.

Can't agree with you more. I am thinking of twisting Uncle Ed's arm, as I want to buy it from him.

Thanks guys. I have always been a sucker for a Fiberglass Fly Rod.
Earlier this year I got myself the Scott F2 in a 3wt as I love a yellow rod, but this rod is something else and I would actually like to fish it along side the new Sage Circa. Now that should be an interesting day on the water. :hnthnt:
