Gentlemen,
I need a Lamiglass IMP904 Popping rod blank. Tried several vendors on left with no luck. Called Lamiglass and they are down due to Covid.
Any help is appreciated.

Check with Herb about CTS blanks to fill your purpose. He's great to work with. Here's a link to their popping/spinning rod blank for salt water - [ctsfishing.com].

All of these Rain Shadow Popping blanks are excellent blanks.

Can you find one of these in the right power and action for your needs?

These are top of the line popping blanks:

Perhaps one of these will work.

Roger,
Thanks for the response. I have built on the RS 7’6” popping rod blanks , great blanks. The customer wants a very “limber” rod. The one he is replacing flexes into the mid section easily, a very “whippy” top section.

The R S blanks are a bit to stiff for him..

Thanks, Pat Barnard

I just built on a CTS Quartz CrystalGlass blank. It behave exactly as what you describe as your customer's desired rod action. Plus, glass blanks are tougher than carbon blanks, if a bit heavier. They aren't as brittle. Contact Herb to see what kind of prices he can get you on CTS blanks.

I emailed them just recently about a blank, they answered promptly.
Noticed they recently had made some of the blanks, and now they are sold out,, looking in the catalog, I don't see where they fit, maybe they were used in the Paco series lighter powered graphite rods. Sorry they are sold out

Mudhole has the IMP843 FWIW.

Really wish I understood their labeling better. I mean what is the difference between the TXC, TLP, TF, GTF, IMC, TFP, TC, XLS, TEX. Truth is I'd probably use a lot more of their offerings if they gave more info. Reckon I need to follow Spencer's advice and email and ask.

You might want to take a look at steelhead blanks, in the length, etc, you want, as well.

Thanks for all the reply’s and time. Lamiglass stated in an email that blank is no longer in production. Still looking at other options. The search continues
