New rod blanks

Postby Tonyzee » Fri Dec 02, 2016 2:17 pm

Just arrived 20 new rod blanks, lots of work to do...

May have too many, have confirmation 3 are St.Croix blanks with their labelling, most are quite stiff blanks, 4 black gloss ones look really solid. If anyone is interested in having a look at a few let me know.

They are all 1piece. 3 of them have labelling 1 is st Croix ps76mlf. 2 are AIS80mf and AIS80mfh. 4 are a heavy line weight.

Unfortunately most are not labelled. Hoppers Crossing location.

Yeah occasionally, more like doing old rod restorations, I have enough cork, reel seats and other stock to build a few that's for sure.

Thanks Tony. I will pass.

It will cost me extra $100 to get it all done.
