    I am looking for a 10foot 10wt black that has a good warranty. We have built a rod on a sage blank before but are there other options that wont be as expensive and still be good for a two handed rod?

    Hi D3Smartie! YES THERE IS!! Dan Craft's new series, the FT (Fast Taper) is being hailed as one of the finest performance blanks on the market, especially as a switch rod or short spey. In fact, builders as renowned as Bob Meiser are basing highly acclaimed series on them! He does have a 10' 10wt 4pc in this series, and as with all his blanks the value is second to none. Drop by www.rodbuilding.org and do a search for Dan Craft + ft and you'll be pleasantly surprised by the posts and reviews. To my knowledge, the only places to purchase them are from The Rocky Mountain Rodbuilding Supply Co. (http://www.rockymountainrodbuilding.com) or from Dan Craft directly (http://www.dancraftent.com/).

    All the best,
