Crappie Rod

So i think this question has been asked before, but.... Where can you find a 14-16ft crappie rod blank?

I've built a few 8-10 footers, but need to build some longer ones. Maybe its not worth my time since most guys are just using $50-$75 rods off the shelf....

I saw Get Bit Outdoors is making a 12ft one so I might try that, but really am looking for 14-16.

Thanks!

Chase

Chase,
I have owned several of these type inexpensive rods.
The blanks perfect for a tight line Crappie rod.

On a couple of the rods, I stripped the rods and rebuilt the rods, more to my liking.

Take care
