bikeandbass posted a topic in General Buy/Sell/Trade ForumI am looking for some Seeker Blue lightning factory (casting/conventional only) or blanks, 8' and over. I'm located in NYC but can drive a reasonable distance if the rod and price is right. Let me know what you've got!
I'm new to building and am really enjoying it. I've purchased one of the all in one kits from Mudhole and just finished that up...not the best but should be able to catch fish but won't look pretty doing it. My next step was to purchase a couple of cheap blanks from Mudhole at 50% off... 5'4" Graphite Spin/Jig Blank - SRB-2 SKU: #SRB-2 5'4" | 8-15 lb. | Moderate Action | Medium Power | 1 Piece | 6 Tip | 0.490 Butt | 12” Metallic Silver Butt Section At $17 bucks...I didn't think it was a bad deal, plus being graphite, I might luck out with a decent rod. My goal was to improve my wrapping skills at using a low budget...I had already the rest of the stuff from the other project, just picked up some guides and a kit handle. It turned out better than I thought and the rod itself was pretty nice for the price. Has anyone else used this blank? What were your impressions of it? I'm thinking about a river/back bay rod... I was thinking about picking up a few more while they are still on sale...Would like to make a few more for my kids...they seem to be enjoying this. Thanks for your feedback. Dave
Luddite posted a topic in General Buy/Sell/Trade ForumI have two of these Daiwa Saltiga Ballistic Rod Blanks and decided sell them instead of having them Custom built. These are the good ones made in Thailand I believe. The model number is SABS-33-405B. These are still in the original plastic packaging. These rods are great because they are in 3 pieces but when you put them together they feel like one piece. On most websites these are listed for $350+ each. Looking to sell these for for $240 each including shipping, insurance and tracking or $450 shipped for the pair including shipping, insurance and tracking.
