Increased blank strength relative to what? How much?
Increased material recovery relative to what? What does "increased material recovery" even mean?
Increasesd blank strength relative to what? Increased how much?
Increased sensitivity relative to what? How did you measure it?
Advanced resin systems relative to what? How advanced?
Refined-purpose actions and lengths. Sounds like this means you know what you are doing relative to fishing requirements. I would hope you would.
Comprehensive application-specific model selection. We would expect nothing less.

I really like some of your blanks, especially Bushidos, but this just sounds like a wine label writer's work. "Essence of grass and minerals, a hint of tobacco."

What constitutes the "best blank" varies from person to person: one guy wants a "pole" which can dangle over his truck's tailgate going down a pothole road at 30 mph. but not break under fishing stress. The next guy has a $ 1K rod he transports in an air conditioned rod tube. In truth, rods vary much more in the minds of rod makers/owners than they do on the water. Precious little quantitive information is published about rod blanks.

True. Depends on the preferences of the user and the job it's intended for.
