I'm looking for a 5wt spey blank. NFC has 7wt and up, Rainshadow has 6wt and up. Are there any other manufacturers out there that have lighter weight spey blanks?

Thanks

R. B. Meiser has them in many lengths. Thomas & Thomas DNA, Winston Boron III, and I think you can still get Sage blanks.

Here is something on the cheaper side. I built one as a crappie jig pole. Worked fine.

I have a CTS 11’-3” 2/3 Spey. With a Sagit line it likes a 215 grain head. A Wulff Ambush 5wt also works well, but I prefer the Rio 215 Sagit.

I’m considering getting a 4/5 CTS, maybe a bit longer length than the 11-3.

I’ve been using my 11-3 for swinging a small bugger streamer with a nymph trailer, on medium to bigger trout rivers it has been working out very well.
