Shimano Trevala Jigging blanks

Just need a recommendation on a blank that is similar to this. These are very thin and light, plus really strong. For there small diameter they can haul a bus up 200ft.

I sell so many Rodgeeks XC blanks to people looking to upgrade from the Trevala.

I will make sure I take a close look at those blanks. Everything I have built on a Rodgeeks blank has been a real eye opener. I have only built on there carbon 2 line and the glass line. I couldn't believe how sensitive they were and the glass was a 7'9" heavy that was really small for its size.

John, a lot of nice fish have been caught on the XC's: [www.facebook.com]

I designed that line of blanks for Rodgeeks, specifically for the fishing we do on the East Coast. The bottom 32" on the 7'3 blanks was designed straight, this way you can cut it down to 6'6 without ffecting performance/power. IT also makes installing teh handle easy since there is no taper to deal with.
