PRODUCTION ON PAUSE
Hi Folks, we are no longer producing this line – for the time being. Once the shop is moved and set up again, I expect to resume production on these and many other of our Golden Witch and Arcane Component Works parts. After an item is listed as ‘Production On Pause,’ please don’t request that we make an exception for you; the tools to make each paused item are already boxed up and ready to move in a shipping container. Thanks for your understanding and patience as we shift from a full-time operation to a semi-retired part-time operation. I expect our sabbatical will last the entirety of 2023, with operations firing up again in early 2024. – Russ
Franken-Stone™ Guide Series
22mm OD Wide Orange Swirl Agatine With Brass Bezel Set In A Vintage Super Duty Frame
These guides feature wide vintage rings, and the extremely heavy-wire vintage frames we found ‘in the rough.’ All the frame forming steps and the other guide finishing steps were performed in-house. We have very few of these old frames sized to fit 22mm rings. Add one of these guides to your rodmaking stash while you can. When you’re ready, make a rod to tackle off-shore behemoths!
The pictured specimen is sold, but we can make a few more similar,though not identical, guides.
Each one of these is going to vary slightly, but figure the guide ring is about 22mm OD x 14mm ID x 7.5mm Wide. It stands about 1.270″ tall and is about 2.210″ long, foot tip to foot tip.
Salmon? Maybe. Sharks, redfish, stripers, halibut….now you’re talking.
Use #30 Tire Silk to lash this down traditionally.
Same Guide, Different Lighting. It’s tough to see it as a distinctly different color, but that bezel is highly polished brass and quite ‘yellow’ compared to the highly polished nickel silver frame. See the swirls of pattern inside the ring? It’s even better when you’re holding the guide in your hand and holding it up to a bright light, or the sun.
