Thank You for starting this Thread, Josh, and Thank You, Tom, for Your reply! I've been curious about Shimano blanks, myself. I have a Shimano CarboMax Casting Rod, CMC-70MH, with the "HyperLoop Construction" that I use for my "all around" bass fishing rod. I put a Shimano Cardiff 300A on it and it is fantastic. I use "semi-customized" 1/8 oz. spinnerbaits alot, and with 12 lb. flourocarbon this rig casts them well, along with 3 1/2" Bass Assassins rigged like a worm with no lead weight...any TopWater Baits, Rat-L-Traps and Shallow Crankbaits, upto 3/8 oz., also cast like a bullet (I don't fish very heavy lures). I recently bought an MHX 7' 10" Mag Bass blank to build a "mostly freshwater" custom and I like the feel of it, so far. I've got a feeling I'll be using more of the MHX blanks.

have the handle lengthened , alot of guys who use thier crucial swimbait rods do this . they do have short handles on their rods . you would think shimano would have already addressed this issue already but they obviously don't seem concerned ...
