Just thought I'd share, I just finished a 6 wt. I used NFC's Gamma Beta F-690 x4 blank. I'm amazed at how accurate it is!! Can't imagine how accurate it is for someone who knows what they're doing.
Amazing!! They make a really nice blank..
I finally finished my 12 and have half of the 10 wrapped. I’ll get the 7’s done soon and order the rest of the quiver. I have an 8 that is an Edge but built on the gamma beta blank that I’m swapping guides to CeRecoil strippers and REC snakes and tip like the others.

Yep!! I put Cerecoil and Black pearl finish snakes on the one piece 8, 10 and 12 I built.
I had a great summer with those rods in the LGI area.. Great blanks form NFC and components from REC. I made the 6 wt for Seat trout. The 8s a little too much rod for my liking with them.

The 8 was a lot of fun with the Snook and Jacks in fact one Jack really put her to the test. Great shit this Florida fishery. Don’t get me wrong north water Blues, Weaks and Stripers are a blast.
A different terrain, exploring new areas is a blast in and of it self. Put Snook, Reds and Trout on top of that and I’m in heaven. Tarpon are a hole different ball game, I hooked and landed one with my 11 wt, another one a few days later spit my fly almost in my face, I actually think he 😉 at me. Great shit....
