I'm trying to find posts or discussions on ice rods and blanks but my searches come up empty. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Check out the following link for some discussion:

I use Sportsmens Direct, VLine Custom Rods and @#$%& for most of my ice blank orders.

Anything specific you are looking for or wanting to inquire about?

look on Ice Shanty.com and In-Depth-Outdoors' forums. Tons and Tons of discussions about custom ice rods and custom ice rod blanks. For my own personal needs, I agree with Ryan, @#$%& and Sportsman's Direct both have a pretty good line-up for very little money.

Thanks Ryan and Jay for the good info.
I am currently working on two rods now using @#$%& blanks. I made 2 rods with Janns Netcraft micro lite blanks that turned out ok but were a little to light (action) for me.
