Hi.

There are many companies that make fine blanks, Graphite USA being one of them. I have not built on them but others rate them well.

It is impossible to build on every companies blanks. To make it worse they come out with newer and finer blanks every year.

dwk2252,

I do not know where you can go to see Graphite USA blanks on Long Island. Maybe someone else can chime in.

Go to www.rodbuilding.org . On the left margin are listed many catalog companies. Click on them and you will find the companies that sell what you are interested in.

Most blank manufacturing companies are located on the west coast. Their blanks are best known out there. These companies are very busy with west coast business and don't try too hard to reach us on the east coast. Much of the data I receive is due to reading west coast web sites and talking to fellow RodCrafters who have prior knowledge of these products.

When is the last time you met any of these factory reps at any of the shows on the east coast. You would have to go to specific custom rod building seminars.
