Im going to use it for float fishing smaller tributaries for chinook, and im building a rod for it on a NFC Xray air carbon blank, the ST 10105-2. Going to put torzite guides and a nice reel seat on it! When its done I will post some pics.

Look at the new Fuji TCS reel seat. It will look cool with the reel. It has an exposed titanium locking nut. I'm not sure if it will match the reel.
