I'm very impressed with the SNAKE I. It is nicely machined, a great color and competes with the Lamson Litespeed weight-wise. Although spec'd for a 3 or 4 weight line, I see no reason why it would not carry a 5 weight line with perhaps a bit of trimming on the running line end. Best of all, FFB donates a portion of it's profits to several great causes! Check out their other offerings or give Carl a call at FFB, he'll be glad to assist you with any questions.
Note the porting on the spool which helps to remove weight. The spool knob (above) will NOT fall off in your hand when changing spools. FFB has a great video on their site that highlights the features of the SNAKE I. They also offer some good deals on lines/leaders and accessories.
