1. Considered that, seems like the best way to know what he wants, but anytime he needs new tackle he goes to me anyways as he does't keep up with the tackle word as much as I do.

2. For the last time THIS IS NOT MY FIRST ROD! I have built plenty of rods. I have made all my current rods, been doing it for years. I am not asking how do I make a rod. I am asking for help selecting a blank because I lack knowledge of the fishery not on rod building.

Be patient, we have reading comprehension issues on SOL . . . if your dad is getting older (I'm 59) he may want to downsize a little, especially since most fish we catch shore-based are schoolies nowadays.  I've downsized and have built both 1085 and 1087 Mudhole surf blanks.  Paired them with a VS 100 and 150 respectively.  Much easier on my back and I can cast those for hours without issue.  Just a thought.
