This is a great blank. I really like the British style since you have the advantage of a 2 piece rod with the performance of a 1 piece. I recommend you tape on the reel and guides until you fine tune the setup. I use a 704Z on mine. The reel is taped on with a very short butt section of about 16 inches. The first guide, 40 mm, is about 38" from the reel. If you have not tried a short butt section, I recommend you give it a try. The butt is short so that I can prop it on my hip during retrieve. This takes a lot of the strain off your arms. Also with the long distance between the reel and the tip of the rod, casting distances and overall performance are equivalent to a much longer rod.

 

I love my seeker. Good luck with yours.
