Just finished an Extreme Super Hollow spey rod. I am taking it fishing today and don't have time to put up any pictures right now. This rod was made from odds and ends of bamboo in the shop to test if a spey rod could be made as thin as my bluegill/trout rods. I have wanted to try this for a long time so now I guess we will see if it will work as planned or blow up in my hands. It has been lawn cast.

Specs:

12 foot hollow built
3 pieces
NS ferrules
Aluminum reel seat
350 - 450 grain window
8.5 ounce rod weight
hollowing is scalloped

I will post some pictures when I get back from fishing.

ESH spey rod

I did not get a chance to fish this rod due to the high water. The river was fishable but this was not the equipment that was needed.

I did get a chance to cast it on a boat ramp and I am very pleased with it. I used a 390 grain skaget with a 90 grain sink tip.

I will take it to the St. Joe one day next week. There are a few steelhead there that could exercise this new rod for me.
