need help locating a blank

Discussion in 'Rod Building' started by mtlhead, Sep 27, 2005.

  1. I'm looking to build another travel rod and have not been able to locate what I am after so far. My first chioce would ba a 4 or 5 pc. fast action 10.5' to 11.5' 7wt to use as a switch (single/double hand) rod for larger rivers. DOes anyone have any mfg's in mind that have what I'm looking for?
  2. Does Dan Craft have a rod like that?
  3. Dan Craft have an excellent swithch blank. I have been having a blast catching Coho on my 11'6" Rainshadow. It's light enough to use (at least occasionally) as a single hander, but it spey casts well, and it's easy to one hand while you retrieve.
  4. Give Bob Meiser a call. You can tell him I sent you. You will be glad you did.
  5. Winston Boron 11'0 7 weight 4 piece
    Sage XP 11'0 6 weight 4 piece
    Sage TCR 12' 4 8 weight 4 piece (tad to long for switch rod)
    St Croix LU has a 10'6 rod ...forget weight 4 piece
    I'm sure there are several more besides what has been mentioned.
  6. I second in giving Mr. Meiser a call...
