11´6¨ blank for centerpin rod?
Posted by: John Lively (---)

Hi - does anyone know of a suitable rod blank to make a 11'6" centerpin rod? The only one I've turned up online is by Raven in IM6 and a dealer told me it's backordered for several months due to production defects with the last batch. This rod will be used for New York state tribs steelhead mainly. All other blanks I've seen online designated for centerpin are 13' and longer, which is not ideal for my creeks/rivers. CTS apparently used to sell an 11'6" Affinity blank but I only see 13-15' blanks on their website now. Shimano makes an 11'6" Clarus rods but blanks are not available that I can see. Ideas?
Thanks

John,
CTS has "streamlined" their website to shorten delivery time.
However, if a blank like the FF (Float Blank - aka Center POin) 11'6" in the lure weight that interests you has been produced before it can be built just for you without an added design fee.
Email me your requirements and I will inquire on your behalf.
Regards,
Herb

If you can go 12 ft. The Lamiglas Closer line of blanks, in various powers, are well received.

Utmost may still have a couple of good closeout blanks available as well.
