The 70LS: Small water streamer rod coming soon

Hello everyone,
I'd like to announce a new rod I'll be doing very soon.  It's called the 70LS (Limited Series, or Little Stiffy). 
  
Some details: 
7' 6wt 3 piece black unsanded glass with tip over butt ferrules. I'll be making 10 of these on a custom basis. Pricing starts at $565, $200 deposit to secure a build. 
Here are some pictures of the final prototype which I made for Brandon Bailes (his flies were the inspiration behind this design).  This one has a downlocking seat, which is an option.  I will also make them with my brass cap and ring seat with wood or cork seat - buyer's choice.

Subtle translucent cinnamon wraps, Mildrum style stripping guides.

Strong progressive action suitable for small water streamers, hoppers, mice and other 'big fly' fishing.  

'#0' = the final prototype

Sensitive enough to feel smaller fish and make accurate casts, versatile enough to put on a dry when you see a hatch coming on.

I expect these to be available by late January '17.  Contact me for more info.
Thanks for looking!

As of January 4, I have 7 of these rods reserved, 3 are available.
