White Blanks Still Popular?

Are you guys finding white rod blanks still popular? A few years ago they seemed pretty popular, but wondering if you still get interest on them?

Thanks,
Marc

One of my customers just built on a white CTS fly blank.
Wrapped it in blue variegated thread - looks sharp. We fished together while he and his wife (yes - she fly fishes too) were on Cape Cod .

I've sold over 1000 ROdgeeks blanks, and by far the most popular color is white.
