Can a blank be cut down?

Every blank offered at American Tackle are designed to be completely customizable. The length of each blank from us is completely decided by the builder to keep that size, or shaped to the perfect size.
That’s exactly what ProStaff builder Foong Chee Keat did here, cutting a few inches off this Bushido blank to give it the perfect size and fit!!!

I would not dream of cutting off chunks of a fly rod blank, but then fly rod blanks play a lesser part than the line in fly-casting than casting/spinning rod blanks play in spinning/bait casting.
