2 piece 'sea foam' metallic rod

I have a potential customer wanting a 'sea foam metallic' rod but the only ones I am aware of are the 1 piece versions by MHX. Looking for a 7' or 7' 6" 10-12 lb MF 2 piece blank. Anyone aware of a 2 piece option that would fit those specs?

I think I answered my own question. I thought they were a sponsor, but not seeing them on the left so I won't mention the company

First line, top of this page: Custom Rod Builders etc. If you do indeed look to the sponsors on the left first, and can't find the item you need, where's the offense in posting where you did find it? Am I off base here?

Rod Geeks has 2 piece blanks in a ton of different colors built on St Croix tapers. I've built 3 so far and they seem like good blanks. They are handling all of St Croix blank sales now. Both US made blanks and the original Rod Geek blanks which are built in Mexico.

Quinn mentioned the company. I thought they were a sponsor, but I don't see them in the list.

Waiting on the client to pull the trigger

Rodgeeks did not renew their sponsorship this year. They have recently gone through some ownership changes.

Per the rules, you can certainly mention companies that are not sponsors. You just cannot post unsolicited advertisements, etc., for non sponsors.
