Product Description


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


Narrow agates in nickel silver frames that are truly suited for modern lines. Perfect for heavier cane rods of 6 wt. and up, as well as classically styled graphite rods of 5 wt. and up.  Recently assembled from antique (pre-WWII) components….until now!  Now we use our vastly superior, shop-made, Hydro-Welded Frames and the vintage rings.

Rings range from 12.5-14 mm O.D. (most 13mm – 13.5mm). No size choice.
