Opinions on blank needed

OK, here's the deal...I'll be building a rod for my brother's b-day present. He'd like a 10' 2-piece (MUST be 2 piece) spinning rod matched up with either a Nautil 7500 or an Ahab 20. It will be used for 6-8 + bait only, and fishing the south shore of LI.


The popular choices in the Lami catalog are, unfortunately, out of his price range (I'm buying components and doing the build as his present wink.gif ), so that leads me to my next option, the Rainshadows...and before you guys ask, I've already spoken with big country on this issue. smile.gif


Price range for the blank is set at $150 give or take a few bucks either way. Will be using HNSG guides, fugi #20 reel seat and wrapped with black under/royal blue wraps.

Have kayak...will travel.

If it's for bait only why not a 1363M-2, take maybe 6" from the tip and the rest from the butt.

To make it really nostalgic try the new titanium plated wire guides, Donart in Freeport carries em. Check with BC about the guides, he's built a few sticks with them and can tell you if they're worth the effort to build with. Something about a good parabolic glass rod when throwing heavy payloads!
