Found an old blank hiding behind the rack ... label says " HG BB2 Big Show", 15-30#, 7 1/2'
Anyone know who made this blank? Heavy Mag Bass? Saltwater?

What is the butt diameter and what is the tip diameter.

Once you have those two parameters, you can go through the various blank suppliers to find a blank with a similar butt and tip size to give you a pretty good idea of the actual use for the blank.

If you look at this page of saltwater blanks from Rainshadow, you will find a 7 foot and an 8 foot with similar parameters, and they are called XH boat rods:

If you look at this page of Mag Bass casting rods, you will see the blanks listed as XH jig pitching rods for casting to heavy cover:

Good luck

Castaway made the BB2 Big Show. It was a very popular flipping stick among Spouthern bass fisherman.

Bassmaster Elite series angler Terry Scroggins is often referred to as "Big Show", not sure if that helps, but I'm sure it refers to him. Could lead you off on a merry chase.
