    Saw it, interesting! Good luck, if I had additional flow I'd rock it on curiosity alone. Bump, even though you're still at the top. ;)

    One of those "blue lines" in the WA, MT,
    Wouldn't work for me either. I checked it out earlier this week, but think I came across in on Facebook before here.

    What will the blank weigh? Can you compare the action you're looking for to a retail rod?

    Thanks!

    Great question. I do not have a blank weight at the moment. As the sample blanks got down to the final 6, they came with guides on so I would have to strip all the guides to get an approximate weight. The samples also do not have any finish on them so the sample weight will be different than the finished product.

    With all that being said, the sample I have with guides, and finished wraps weighs in at 1.6oz.
