New rod questions.

Yesterday I lost my favorite worm rod, a Basspro 85 million modulus 6' casting 8-17 lb line. I use 8 lb fluorocarbon line and a 1/8th oz worm weight and a zoom finesse worm. I need to build another rod very similar to that one. What blank/s would you recommend and what reel seat. I built a couple of Batson Immortal blanks that I like and an MHX but they were lighter spinning rods. Thanks for your help.

Rod blanks don't care if they are made into spinning or baitcasting rods. Find a blank that matches the specs of your old rod the closest and go with that.

How about the MHX Shooter Blanks? I have made several in various power ratings. Make very good short rods for bass. Have made them with cork pistol grips and Winn grips. [www.mudhole.com]

I had a problem logging into the website but here I am. I took Taylor's advice and bought the shooter CS722 blank. I have another shooter blank I made up spinning that I like. It's the CS721 for lighter line and river fishing. I'm waiting impatiently for it to arrive.
