I bought the 7'6" 4 pc 4 wt. This is a great rod. It was my first build and I was really impressed with the quality of the blank. I really don't think you can beat the cost either!
The rod casts great, is light weight and well balanced. It is a little bit soft when casting but I bought this as my dry fly rod. Overall a great rod and I will be purchasing more again soon!
Great choice for a first build!

I purchased the Forecast 8'6" 4wt for my first ever build and was very pleased with the outcome. All the components from the blank to the guides with pre-ground feet were of great quality!
It casts nicely and is a good looking rod. Great value!

I built this in a rod building class and it was easy. The kit has the correct sizes for everything. Following directions it is easy to assemble and works great. I fished on the Snake River near Jackson WY and caught several fish. None of them were lunkers but I know the rod works.
