Hi Joe - The rods and lines arrived in good order. I got
a chance to look the rods over very closely and am very impressed with your workmanship and style of the rods. I like rods
that are simple, well executed and functional, but still have an aesthetic appeal, and these fit that to a T. The color combinations
with the wood spacers, blued hardware, cane color and wraps merge perfectly. The canework is great. To say I am very pleased
is an understatement! The Para 13 is very welcome to a place like North Carolina, where a light
4 is so often ideal, and even a standard 4/5 Perfectionist feels a bit heavy. The ability to cast short as well as flip longer
casts is very much welcome.
The Para 14 seems a perfect companion to the Para 13, and will be ideal as you say on the website,
when one is not certain about fishing a smaller or larger river for the day. Terrific.
