    Hi everyone,

    The kick starter is off to a great start. If you haven't already, please check out the video (I know, i'm no Brad Pit, but humor me). The blank outstanding and hope you will join me in supporting this project.

    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. ;)

    Thanks for the bump! The project is now over half way funded after only one week. Still time to join. Check out the link above.

    Link isn't working. Is it just me?

    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.
