    Getting a custom rod made....what blank

    Well I've decied to get a custom rod made by a bloke i know. Basically I am going to get all the components off him and he will give me lessons on how to do it.

    Now when it comes to blanks I'm pretty clueless though he suggested a CTS blank for a more upmarket option or more budget a fenwick blank.

    Rod will be teamed with a stradic 3000FI with 5lb powerpro and maybe 10lb on each spool.

    Looking at a 2-4kg blank 6'6" to 7' fast action (fast means a softer tip yeah?) Will be used for casting small lures and plastics for flatties, jungle perch, sooties, jack and barra, as well as the occasioanl bait session for bream and whiting.

    Anyway, new to the rod building game can anyone recommend a few different blanks for me??

    Mo tackle still have some loomis blanks in their rod building-clearout section. Loomis is not available as a blank anymore, only factory rolled.
