Cabela's E-glass

I have a request to build a rod to match a Cabela's E-Glass that is probably 20+ years old. I am trying to find a similar blank. The markings are:

Lures 3/8 - 1
Line 6 - ?
This is a two piece blank.

Can anyone suggest a blank that would be comparable?

well you have to check the vendors to the left of this page
Batson rain shadow, Rod geeks, St. croix, Lamaglass and match is as close as possible but a rod that old will be quite a stretch might have to settle for s glass something in a IM 6

Jann's Netcraft has a 6 1/2 ft. version, other than that good luck with finding a two piece in that weight class.
