They offer a tremendous selection of rod blanks. I suspect that if you contact them and let them know of any specific blanks you want to see, they'll be sure to have them on hand.

TOmmy, I am pretty sure they will have a new line of surf blanks designed by John Martines, along with Freshwater blanks and Inshore Saltwater. I'll see if John can post more info

We need to limit the ammount of blanks being brought to about 30. In this 30 we are trying to cover the whole catalog of which there are over 600 different actions. We will have Fly, Salmon, Freshwater bass really a variety to show everyone what we have. As Billy mentioned we will also have the new east coast surf plugging blank line there which I'm very happy with. Thanks for your intrest in Talon and see you at the show!!

Lou, I do think that we will be selling blanks if someone wants. We are really trying to bring a little of everything to show case what Talon is all about and get the word out that we are still out there making Quality blanks in the USA. I almost forgot to mention we will be showing for the first time a new freshwater line of blanks made up of a high modulus blend of graphite that will be going into production by the time the Expo starts.Thanks John
