Barclay Synthesis 68L 6'8" Light 3wt - Yakusugi wood seat

725.00

I have for sale here a very unique rod. The is my own 68L from my Synthesis series. This blank is different than my regular run of 68 blanks as it is a lighter action. I’ve decided to offer these occasionally as an ‘off the menu’ offering. As of July 2018 I have made 6 of these rods and don’t plan on many more.

This rod features Snake Brand Original darkened nickel guides, an old stock Mildrum ME stripping guide, Pearsall’s Gossamer silk thread for the wraps, a Flor grade cork modified cigar grip and Yakusugi wood* reel seat with my darkened nickel cap and ring.

*A good friend in Japan sent me some very special Yakusugi wood to use on a few rods. This is a kind of Japanese cedar that is between 1000 and 2000 years old. It’s got incredible coloration and silking to the grain.

$725 includes brass capped tube, rod sock and shipping is included in the US. International buyers please contact me to work out split shipping costs.
