Ameriglass Classic  - 3pc Clear/Natural Glass

ONE (1)      7'6"  4wt  3pc - FINISHED - Pic's Soon

TWO (2)       8'6"  5wt  3pc - FINISHED - Pic's Soon

The Classic models are designed with a slower, yet highly refined,

taper and a traditional, deep flexing glass feel.  Classic blanks

excel at true fishing distances and roll casting but will

still make longer casts with ease.  Classic blanks offer high

line feel and unmatched smoothness. (Mike McFarland)
