I bought a 10' Custom spinning rod from someone locally. The guy who sold it said he had it custom wrapped for him. He didnt remember what blank it was made on. 

I can't find any marking on the rod that would tell me the blank. There is custom wraping where I think the blank ID woud be located.

The rod is two piece, 30/70 split. The blank is a charcoal color.

To me, it feels like a Lamiglas. Is there any way to determine the blank?

Those guides are a throw back to 25+ years ago. Some one could have used some left over guides on a newer blank. 
Far as I can recall Lami did not make a 70/30 split back then. Charcoal blanks would be GSB’s which are 50/50 split at 10’

Tip and butt diameter would help.
