Jetty rod casting blank

Good morning,
Looking for a 7'6- 7' 9 sensitive blank for a casting jetty rod build.
This rod will be used for striped bass fishing with jig heads and soft plastic and sp minnow lures. I need something light with a lot of backbone. Thank you in advance for any information.

Al can you give us a little more information here? What weight jigs you want to throw and what do you plan on using for a reel and line? And the fish, do you want a rod to target the avg size fish you'll be catching or something to handle the occasional heavier fish? For example in the springtime we have a lot of 18" fish around and I fish for them with a 2-4lb class rod and it's a lot of fun and lets that little fish take drag and bend a rod. The occasional 10 pounder over powers the rod but that's what a lot of guys gear up for. How would you like to do it?

I will be using jigs from 1/4 to 1 once, with a low profile casting reel with 20 pound test. I will be fishing for strippers average size 10-30 pounds. Looking for sensitive blank with some back bone to be able to fight also big blue fish.

Alf, Look at Get Bit Outdoors Saltwater Composite blanks. I think you will find one that fits your application.Soft tip for casting and stiff butt for power.

Look at the Rainshadow RX8 salmon rods. I've built one into spin, one into cast. The cast really is a long distance caster. XST series has changed some since I built, but a lot of options. Keep in mind that you can cut off from the butt if needed,, but long = long casts. Cutting from the butt will slightly slow the action and slightly reduce the power.
