Looking for telescopic walleye trolling rods

I am looking to build a telescopic trolling rod for walleye.
I was thinking of trying a spiral guide wrap design,
Does anyone know of a good source for this type of blank?

I have some old Lew's speed sticks but probably should find something newer lol.

do you want a flipping stick ??

from mudhole MHX FS905 Flipping Stick Rod Blank
(0) SKU: #FS905-MHX

$79.50
or here is a link to what they have [www.mudhole.com]

are you dragging port and starboard yellow bird plainer boards with crank baits ? or just crank baits are you using bottom bouncers ?
could better advise you on choice of rods to use if you provide a bit more info

If you go with a 2 piece blank like a long salmon rod you can use them for downrigging, dipsy divers, and getting an increased spread on your flatlines.

So the only blanks I have found have been the ones posted by Matt.
This is an experimental build.
I am thinking the telescopic part may be more important than the spiral wrap which I have never done and not sure the synergy with a telescopic rod.
Likely will be used boards with harnesses or cranks either one depending on what (type of blank) is out there.

your kind of limited as there isn't to many available
here is another I found
[www.jannsnetcraft.com]
you could call Batsonrainshadow and see if they have any in their line of of blank brands

spiral wraps aren't that hard just takes a bit more putzin to get it right
