For someone looking to own a really special Big Fish, Big Fly Specialty Rod, we have created a very unique LIMITED EDITION Version of our MONSTER 395cm. The rod is the same blank and structure as the STANDARD version of the MONSTER 395 with a really beautiful Brown Trout print above the handle. The print is double coated with premium epoxy and will protect this vulnerable section of the rod for a lifetime of hard use. If you are going to do battle with some big fish, and want to do it with a little style, the MONSTER 395 LIMITED EDITION will get the job done and then some. From a style standpoint, we believe these rods are without equal on the market, and with the performance standards we built into the original rod, we think the LIMITED EDITION of the MONSTER 395 is a truly unique piece of art that performs as good as it looks. 

Below is our description of the original MONSTER 395. 

The MONSTER 395 is a high end rod designed to do battle with big fish in the most demanding conditions. The RRC MONSTER 395 is a rod designed to be casted with 2 hands, and can easily load up PVC lines in lengths only limited to an anglers skill level. The MONSTER can cast large flies and put serious leverage on big fish. At 395CM (13') and coming in at a whopping 6.3 OZ (without the nose cap), this is a formidable rod. With that said, when using a 2 handed casting style, it is very easy to cast, and can punch through the wind and land a streamer in surprisingly small windows. It has a very fast action for a fixed line rod and if we were using the standard Japanese Flex Rating for this rod it would hover in the 8:2 range. The carbon fiber grip we use is different from our other rods in the fact that this grip is built using a extrusion process. On our mandrel, we outsource the manufacturing of this grip to a company that uses a million dollar extruder to "pull/press" the grip under heat. We then mount the grip to the monster blank by placing foam cores in the front and back leaving the middle 9" of the grip hollow to help reduce weight. The MONSTER 395 is a very high tech piece of engineering for the big fish, big fly junkies that require a serious rod for doing battle with serious fish. Originally designed for a group of Steelheaders in upstate NY, the Monster 395 can be used in a variety of applications that a require a serious piece of gear to get the job done.
