Although I am a dedicated cane rod maker, I recently received a Seele glass blank from Michael Mauri, one of the principals in that company. It is an 8'8", 6 weight and I just finished it in the same style I use for my cane rods. Yesterday, the completed rod got nice reviews at the Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club casting ponds and I happen to think it is a pleasure to cast (fishing has to wait a while).
I have posted pictures of the rod on Clarks ( http://classicflyrod...=685572#p685572 ). I would have done so here, but the 50kb limit on file size made that impractical.
