Thank you all so much. I’m a bass fisherman. What started all this was trying to find the best blank for a weightless Senko rod. I was looking at the Bashido blanks and thats where my confusion began.

Bill Falconer has several videos of how he does it. One is even on Mudholes channel. When I started finishing similar to him and using Gen 4 is when I made great strides in quality.

I’m relatively new to rod building. Ive only built 10 or so. What is the difference between a mag bass blank and a spin jig blank? How do I decide which one to use? Ive talked to sales reps at two different manufacturers and they don't know.
