Here is a limited production Epic Slate blank finished in my presentation grade. One-of-a-kind and very understated. The red accents in the tippings, agate guide and redwood burl really complement this unique blank. Reel seat is a state-of-the-art Bellinger aluminum hardware in a matte dark plating. Lately, the half wells, so called, "snub-nose" grip (by Sage) proves to be very comfortable even in the lighter weights. It's my favorite grip along with the western grip. The 686 is one badass six weight that needs no further introduction. This one's bending in Finland! Thanks for looking!
