I just found a bunch of old g-loomis blanks on the web . the person or group also have some custom builds for a good price . Blanks are = premier im6 imx and some gl-3 I have cast an im6 9' 5 wt. gary loomis sig. series rod and it was one sweet stick . just wondering if these IM6 blanks would compare . i also have a 12 wt. premier that i made into a columbia river gear rod that just takes a beating and has done me well for around 20 years . i used to use it for chinook on the fly but converted it . the IMX blanks were the top of the line back in the day . These blanks are said to be seconds and over stock and are selling from $59 to $79 just thought i would give a heads up on the blanks - all single hand lengths and wts. from 3 wt to 8 wt. Also some custom builds from cote's rod building - anybody know this shop ? i'm thinking on buying one of his custom light rod builds on a IM6 or IMX . I didn't know where to post this so posted in rod building encase anyone was interested in older g-loomis blanks . seems to be a good deal to me . On the IM6 blanks = winston IM6 rods go for a really good price used andI didn't understand why untill i cast the gary loomis signature series rod - it was just a great casting rod with "soul" my question would be what is the difference in the im6 blanks built for winston - loomis signature series - and regular im6 blanks - can anyone help with this ? P.M. for more info if interested , they are on a popular bidding website . Also i have nothing to do with the sellers just passing word and asking what you might think about these blanks . thanks for any advice !
