A rodbuilding friend told me about these Ebay blanks so I decided to get one to build. It is an 8' 5/6 wt clear blank. Reel seat is AmTak's window skeleton seat with the thread wrap showing through the skeleton. The grip is Carbon fiber ends, cork and birch bark with black trims. Guides are Pac bay stripper and chrome SF guides and flytip. The rod was good and straight and has a good action. I have only fished it with a 5wt line so far but the rod has a nice medium+ action. I can't wait to put a six on it and go for some bass.
