Anyone know the specs for this blank. I got it at a estate sale. Was in a plastic sealed, and a sticker with RF 806 label.
Thanks

Might be a Rich Forhan legacy elite S glass crankbait blank. Eight foot long in a heavy power moderate action for big crank baits. Designed by Rich Forhan and used to be sold by Swampland Tackle. I think it was made by Seeker. I might be corrected by others here.

Roger,

You have a piece of garbage. Send it to me for proper disposal ;-). I want to think the line/lure specs are 10 - 20 lb. 1/4 - 1 1/4 oz. They are very fine blanks.
