Allstar Austin blanks

It's a long shot I know but I'm trying to track down an old Allstar Austin 10/11wt fly blank to build. I tried to post in the Buy/Sell but couldn't get past the Captcha part. I built a few fly rods on the old Austin and Elite series and really like them, hoping to find one for an upcoming tarpon trip.

You'd have better luck winning the lottery, I think I have a 5 wt. somewhere, I have a PVC tube around somewhere with some fly blanks in it, they are from the Andy Dear era, with a white CTS, and others in the mixed bag.

Hello ANDREW,

I don't have this blank,but i built a lot of spinning rods on ALL STAR AUSTIN(TITANIUM) fly blank for fishing in freshi and salt water.Beautiful rods witch help me to catch a lot of beautiful fish,most of the time on jig or hard lures...I don't know if work for you.
I m fishing just with long (over 10 ' ) spinning rods,amd for thir reason i was buying on new ALL STAR AUSTIN fly rod AF9012-3,,lenght 9' ,line W12,3 pieces from TOM KIRKMAN with $150.
I WAS BUYING THIS ROD IN IDEEA TO CHANGE THE ROD IN SPINNING ROD,but i don't change the rod and still new,AND NOW FOR MEDICAL REASON(I AM 73 YEARS OLD,DISABLE ) FOR 2 YEARS I DON'T FISH ANYMORE.

If you need this rod i can sell to you with the same preice $150.

I live in HOUSTON,TX and my home phone : 281-497-8835.

No doubt among the best blanks made. I have a 2-piece Allstar 8.5' #11 blank; would you be interested in it? Also bought it for tarpon but it's easier for me to travel with 4-piece rods.

Thanks so much for the offers, I guess it just goes to show, you never know what you can find unless you ask. I actually found a 9' 10/11wt just yesterday but it's a 2 piece. I'm still interested in the the 11wt and will follow up. Thanks again!
