Fine Tackle James Green Build Offering

Christian Hörgren of Fine Tackle has offered up his latest build which is on a James Green Semi-Parabolic three piece four weight blank.  Christian's builds have a style all their own and it's really neat to see him delve in rod building on a more serious level. 

Christian wrote...  "This taper was developed in close dialogue with James Green who also rolled the blank. The finish of the blank is amazing.  Un-sanded, yellow blank with thin walls.  Crisp recovery and smooth semi-parabolic action.  There aren't many parabolics out there, and this is absolutely one of the best tapers available.  It's an excellent rod with a WF4/DT4, but it can handle a three weight nicely as well.  Nice progressive action on shorter distances, and a deeper flexing semi-parabolic action on longer distances (from 30'-40' feet).

The rod is appointed with my own all cork reel seat, bronze guides, brown/orange silk and Threadmaster Lite.  Includes aluminum tube and my own rod sock in cotton canvas.

Price is $550 with shipping from Sweden."

Christian can be contacted by email if interested in purchasing this build.
