Hey Pete I was thinking about checking out the CTS line of blanks. I want to keep it light as possible because I was thinking of putting the small calcutta 200d on it. I do alot of bucktailing up in rhode island with bucks up to 6 oz and water up to 80 feet. My question to you is what blank would you recommend and will that reel work on the blank? Also what other blanks would you suggest for my application? Thanks alot!!

Hi Sean, are you fishing on a headboat or a private boat?

check out the es 705 for as faster rod or a cn 703 if you like a more moderate bend. I have a calcutta 200d on my cn 703 and it balances really nice.

So then I would say that an uncut BS702 up to 4oz and a BS703 for the heavier work - up to 6oz bucks. This happens to be my exact pair of customs that comes with me every jigging trip. Except both of mine are cut 6" from the butt - because I fish very close to the water out of my own boat and don't need the extra length.

If you want to go with a single stick, look at the CN703. (Factory model number is BSM703 - which means a BS that has been modified for a more moderate action - something that Capt Neil dreamt up and had them custom roll for him - and CTS liked it so much that they put it into their production blank lineup as the BSM series).
