2-5oz and it was great between 2 1/2-3 1/2. Still a great blank. Saw a couple new in a local shop in the last 6 months

Thanks. I have one cut down and like it. Thought that was the rating and agree with the appraisal you have. Tried it with 1 1/2oz yesterday and it did not load well and that's why I posted. Worked ok... but not great. It's wrapped conventional and I'm not yet an expert going that way... but not bad either. Thanks.

I have one made up in conv. but was thinking of making it into a spinning rod . Maybe because it is cut down. is the cut off the tip. That will make it stiffer. I would think a 1 1/2 would cast easy on that rod.

Tip is stock. Took it out today with my Daiwa SL20SHV and did some practicing with 1 1/2 bucktail and curly worm... into a slight breeze. Did fine... caught 3 shorts and had some fun. I do love this blank.

I have an 1164 blank in my basement. It measures 9'10" long, I believe it was cut from the tip. That measures 1/4 in diameter, would this be correct?

 

We've been down this road before...

Looking at the bend I would say a 1164 3m, 2f only bends at the top, fast action for plugging. Catolog Sept 1,1970= 1164 is 136'' long= tip .190 = butt 1.060 =weight 14oz= ferrule size 43/64= list price $15.00

I have a 3m... Much diferent action and tip size. No spot on a 3M is as small as the tip on this. I think it came down to a 2M or 2F and the 2F seemed to be the consensus.

In my experience, Lami's definition of Fast is not like CTS or Century. To them, M meant you felt it bend under your right had while fighting a fish. F meant about a foot higher. On an 11' blank. The 2F felt stiffer in the butt than the 3M. Awesome blank

I had 3 small bass on today... and watched the action on this. Even though the fish were less than keepers, they were in current and the rod bent mostly in the top 1/3 of its length. I've had 2m's and they are parabolic through to the butt. This is not like that.
