CRB Blanks - 5'6" and 6'0" Light - anyone used them?

Has anyone used these blanks, and what are your thoughts? Are they soft enough to fish 4# mono on? They look a little larger on diameters than most of the light blanks I use. Also - I know they are not a high end blank, but how is sensitivity. Are they comparable to anything in particular?

Thanks!

I have been using the CRB 6ft 6in and 7ft light blanks for many years without any issues, They are rugged and durable and price-wise they are hard to beat..

I can't comment on compatibility with other blanks but those I use are very sensitive.

I'm doing one now and have done several. For me they are on the up side of light.. 6OR 8 LB. is closer. (imo)
They are good blanks for the money.
