Cheap fiberglass blanks?

I have 6 grandkids ranging in age from 22 to 2. I’ve built them each a fishing rod for Christmas when they were around 5 years old. I also built my daughters rods when they were 5 or 6 years old using Fenwick blanks,that was back in the 1980’s. The last 2 for the grandkids were on Netcraft fiberglass blanks which cost about $12 to $15 each but they no longer sell them. Does anyone know where I can buy some fiberglass blanks that are about 5-51/2 feet for a spin cast rod light action mostly for sunfish? No more than $20-$25.

Hi Tim

A few options to consider....

CRB Value E-Glass 6'6" - longer than you want but can cut a little off the back end
[www.mudhole.com]

CRB Color Series - fun 5'6" and 6' models in many colors - the 2-6 lb. models make great panfish and light fresh choices....

5'6" series rod kits too

As bonus options - some clearance blanks that are popular for panfish...
