Proof sells blanks, Epic sells blanks but often they are not in stock, Hook & Hackle has sold cane blanks but their website is a mess being redone, so you could call them, Gray Wolf Rods sells blanks.

Olde English Fly Shop last I built one had them, was around ten years ago though. I think one of the new sponsors The FlySpoke Shop may deserve a look.

dennis stone , Razing Kane (john niemann), tim zietak(sp?) all make good blanks in US. i've bought from dennis stone and Razing Kane with happy results. reasonable cost, timely delivery as well. they can make about whatever you want.
i have always gotten the blanks with ferrules fitted already.
john niemann prefers to make 2 piece rods with 1 tip.

I also bought a blank from Razing Kane, John is a great person to deal with and my blank is excellent. It’s been a bit of a challenge component wise but I’ll get there.
Mike.
