I just wanted to metion that our new catalogue for rodbuilders will also have listings for Shikari Blanks as we are also a distributor for them in Canada.
For anyone not knowing much about Shikari, they are a very dedicated professional company with state-of-the-art blank design expertise located in the heartland of America at a 20,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We're proud to be associated with them as a dealer/distributor and look forward to helping our customers for the desired blanks they produce.
At Shikari, research and development is taken seriously and has resulted in the new premium performance SHX-HP graphite material, expecially suited to higher end fly rods. Shikari's reputation for excellent blanks for custom rod builders is gaining, and repeat customers for their products is a common occurrence.
The categories and specs. are worth perusing and selections are great from the offerings we will show in our new catalog also featuing St. Croix and Rainshadow/Forecast blanks and products for the custom rod builder.
We look forward to custom rod builder inquiries about Shikari blanks and think you will be interested in their quality and selections.
If you're interested in receiving our new catalog please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org

I second that Richard. I just returned from the Shikari plant and had a great visit with Brian Kaupke, President of Shikari. Picked up my order and bought a few more then I intended. Just like a kid in a candy store.LOL

I built a 7' 50# glass blank and it may lift a Rhino. LOL. Seriously, this blank is tough. Will have to test it soon, eh Rich
