L70 is the lightest rod in the line-ups of Kakuhiro rod. He named this line “L” series because the taper of the rod blank is compounded like stem of the Lotus. None of the fly rod maker invented such a complicated taper, which has thickest in the middle of each four rod sections. You will be addicted by the unforgettable smoothness once you cast. The biggest advantage to use one weight line is that you can reduce the impact when the line hit the water. This is the ultimate rod to catch the spooky fish in the small creeks.
