Have been asked to build a new tip for a Gary Howells rod and would like to know which snakes he used. I have not seen the rod as it is in transit but would like to get a jump on the project, thanks all. Livingstone

The book would be able to tell you, or you could call Glenn at Sweetgrass maybe. Maybe RK Bolt?

Without question, Perfection guides. I sold him my entire stash at one time and had some written correspondence with Gary on the subject.
