This is a short list of 2 that I know of. Smokeys in Lindenhurst and Bobs Tackle in Amity Harbor. I'm sure there are more that I am not aware of.
I have never heard of Calstar and Pac Bay blems for sale.
It seems to be a tread that the manufacturers are destroying the blems. They want us to buy 1st quality blanks. I'm sure they have probably had people sending back rods built on blems looking for replacements when the rods are broken.
If I want to buy a blem I want to see it before I HAND OVER THE CASH.
Have Fun Fishing. Capt Neil
