Light weight blank

I'm looking to get a 7'6" light weight fast action blank, for inlet fishing. I fish about 6-8 hours a day, so has to be light. The target will be flounder, be throwing between 1 1/2 - 2 0z. weight. Any suggestions?

Hi Don,
CTS makes some nice light blanks in 7'0" and 8'0" if the 76" is not your only choice.
But if you wish I will check with them if they have any of those models already designed in 7'6" so you won't have to pay design fees for a custom blank.
Prices in a 7'0" are about $200 with shipping.
Let me know.

Herb, I appreciate the get back! But that's a little rich for my blood, due to fixed income.

Our inshore lineup has proven to be one of our most popular. One of our 7'6" models may work for you.

Yeah you're throwing heavier than we do. Go with the RX6 MB945 (ignore the line rating, it'll more than hold) - [www.rainshadowrodblanks.com]

Don, NFC still has it's 65% off sale. They have three models in their Delta series, that would work for you. SW764-1 Delta, SW765-1 Delta, or MB795-1 Delta. At 65% off and free shipping they are around $40 ea. Great deal on high quality Blanks.
