I would like to know if anyone here has used American Matrix blanks? They have the particulars I'm looking for (at least they seem to in the Common Cents database, I've never seen one for real).
They are certainly inexpensive enough that my wife wouldn't raise an eyebrow if I ordered one!
In the pictures I've seen in catalogs and on the net they look somewhat gaudy.
But I know that pictures are not the real thing, and they might actually be classy!

Anyways, I'm leaning strongly towards those or Batson blanks for for my next rod.
Any opinions on the Matrix blanks?
