Barry

It may also be a CRB (Mudhole) blank. I have a few of these blanks that are several years old and some of them have a sticker on the butt end with "AMSP701-L", "AMSP701-M" and "AMSP601-L" on them. I would assume 6"6" medium.

I believe amsp is American tackle Matrix blank spinning...pretty sure it is a discontinued matrix blank that Jenns used to sell...would also explain why it's not listed in current catAlog.

Does it haven a woven graphite pattern in the butt section of the rod? If it does it is an American Tackle Matrix blank. The discontinued ones were green. They are nice blanks.
