My first quad spliced joint rod is about to go out the door! It has been very exciting to start making quads again. For some reason I really enjoy finishing them out. There is something about the four sides that make them have a clean look.
I have added quads to the side price list. For right now I am only offering spliced jointed rods. These will be made in small batches, generally a different length and weight each year. Right now I will probably make four or five rods a year and each will be the same. Each rod will be numbered to the slot they were made. For example, a rod will be listed as 1 out of 5 or 2 out of 4. All rods will be made to the lightest tolerances.
In the past I have made quads with other builders. From here on out it will be me from beginning to end.
Here is a pic of the first rod. Its a 7' 10" 4 weight. All cork reel seat and aluminum hardware. The total weight on this rod is 2.9 oz.
I plan on getting back on my plan of writing on the blog every week, so please check back frequently. Thanks!
