Euro Nymphing Blanks

Hi everyone,

I am planning on making my buddy a 3 or 4 wt Euro nymphing rig for his wedding. I would prefer to spend under $250 for the blank if possible, and I have had a hard time finding blanks to suit my needs in the lengths I am looking at (10-11 feet). Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am open for ideas on how to proceed so I can begin this build. Thank you.

-John Mc

CTS Affinity X, in my opinion, best option out there.

Contact HNL Rod Blanks.

Thanks Bill H.

Yes John - The CTS Affinity-X 10' or 11' #3 can come in at under your price threshold.
It would be your lightest blank option.
Email me if you want price.
Your email address is hidden.
Regards,
Herb
PS - I can also help you with component pricing.
