Thanks I was wondering also if there were any lamiglas suggestions and components as I'm actually gonna try and build myself just ordered me a flexcoat kit. I'm tryna start building rods and as a beginner would like to get more into it not only for the love of the sport and to also make an extra buck..

Get yourself a Lamiglass BT 963M blank, cut 6 inches of the front and 6 inches off the rear. Use fuji MNSG guides and tip.Make yourself a 6 1/2 inch for grip and a 14 inch rear grip.I like to use the X-TUBE on the grips. This is a shrink wrap you can put over cork tape. It works great. I use this rod for blackfish, seabass and striped bass. I think you wil like it also, good luck.
