Dunno about Breakaway but I have thought about them off and on. Never seriously enough to shell out the $$, though. Shoff still lists RS blanks on their site. Prolly other sellers have some as well. Dunno why Batson did that as those pokey RS blanks are perfect for geezers. Mudhole promised some heaver blanks in their MHX line a couple years ago but that never came about. I guess there's always Lami, but the only one I ever tried was the 1502. AFAW...guess you can get them from England. I liked them ok but the only one I have left is the Big Beach so I must not have liked them all that much. Well, not quite true as I still have a 13' 6&Bait which will throw 10+. It is a long thrower. Tommy Farmer's blanks...lots of raves about them but the only one I tried was a bit too fast for me. It, too, is a long thrower. Guy I know down in FLA swears by Century. But, unlike me, he's young and tuff. And there's some high dollar stuff out there. If I wasn't getting so long in the tooth I'd be scrabbling for blanks...as it is, I'm starting to dump rods I seldom use. Gonna gleefully convert a spinner guy to a real fisherman.
