There are just a lot of great blanks out there. 1st How much do you want to spend on just the blank and is made in America important to you? 2nd What is your preference, are you already fly fishing and what are you using? 3rd Do you want a fast rod, medium or slow? If you can answer those questions I can point you in the right direction. I started building fly rods first about 31 years ago.I also have the glue from my recent repair. Any suggestions on fly rod blanks?
