    For a donation rod I would probably go for one of the Roger blanks as mentioned above. For a bit more money, Elkhorn makes pink blanks as well.

    Thanks guys. Bob, I agree with you that a short 3wt. needs to be able to cast well in close. I need to try a 4wt. line to slow down the action a bit and see what happens. I've built a few of these...
