Thinking about building a new 11’ rod to replace my 20+ year old GSB132-1M.  Just curious if there is a comparable 11’ blank out there that is lighter, 1-piece, with a similar action.  Thoughts?

I'm hoping you have lots of excess cash burning a hole in your wallet, the cost of getting it to you will easily exceed the blank cost.

ODM might be the only other company making one piece blanks right now.

The Evolution would be a good choice. Very pricey though.

 

Why not consider a new GSB built with modern guide train. This will knock some weight off the finished rod.

I rebuilt it a few years ago.  Just looking for something lighter and possibly a little thinner in the handle.
