I have not built one but i did check them out at the expo and it was one of two blanks by Batson that really appealed to be , it was more stout than the others which really peaked my interest , felt like a blank that i typically prefer . Interested in hearing feedback myself .

The live bait version of the series is very nice.

Herb and Spencer thank you for the response I appreciate your time. Spencer as I am not familiar with live bait blanks, ( 99% of the stuff I build are all mb blanks) would the live bait be similar to a pooping blank? I’ve used quite a few of those for trout and redfish when I lived on the east coast and some for crankbait rods.


Thanks
Tom
