Looking for a good blank for rockfish (20-40lb) thats not gonna break the bank. Most all of my lighter casting rods are Lamiglass but I was thinking of going with something else for my heavier outfits. I also do not want to go any shorter than 6'6" for versatility.
Input?

Pac bay X2RT20-B or 30 B

Take your pick. I've built Bay trolling rods on all of them. I built a set of the X2RT30B during the winter and ended up keeping them for myself.:thumbup:

Length wise, I stick with 6' trolling rods. IMHO they fight a fish better than the 6'6"

Thanks for the info. Might try the Rainshadow blank.
As with most RS blanks the SWB is a fast action blank. When making a trolling rod with it be advised to trim according.

I know this is an old thread, but does anyone have any updates to trolling blanks? Also, where these blanks can be found. I checked Mudhole and could only locate a few of the blanks listed above.
