?? NEW BLANK ???

When production rods are not enough, it's time to go custom. Come share your experiences building and/or ordering a custom rod and tell us if you'll ever go back to off the shelf.

Are you looking for a blank to build on (rodbuilding section), or a production rod? As for a high end 2 piece blank, I've searched high and low to no avail. The Major Craft ms-x is a ready to go rod that checks all your boxes except being manufactured in the US. The Jackall Poison Adrena may be another option. I just purchased a 2 piece for my travels as I couldn't find a blank. St Croix makes some 2 piece blanks in the SC5 graphite. About as nice as you will find for a 2 piece blank.

The x weave is purely cosmetic. I expect you can buy a trim piece to make it look like X weave if you want. St Croix SCV have a good range of quality blanks in two piece.

Phenix K2's come in 2-piece and have an x-weave look to it, but it's not made in USA. I don't believe there is one made in the US.

Wow. I didn't know this. Are the 2 piece only available in the production models, or are the blanks only available for purchase? Thx

My mistake. After checking their site, I guess the 2-piece are only available in production rods.. I thought all their stuff were available as blanks or rods, but I guess I was wrong.
