Gentlemen,
I'm looking for a blank with the following approx. specs.
8 foot ; IM7 graphite ; .370 butt dia ; 4 tip dia ; 1.7 ounces blank weight
Preferably 2-piece ; US made
The only candidate I've found, so far, has been the Sage Bass II bluegill and am looking for more options.

Thanks,
Gene

Spencer,
Good selection. Close but I feel it will be slightly under-powered. IM6 material and slightly smaller butt dia.
The St Croix Mojo bass looks promising but, I was told the blanks are not available to the US market.

Thanks,
I'll keep looking

Gene

There are some Pac Bay Rain Forest IM7, 8ft. 6 wt. blanks still around if you look, same dimensions though. Utmost Ent. used to have some. I CC'd one years ago, ERN was 6.5, AA was 62 deg.
