9' one piece build
 
Looking to build a 9', most likely 1 piece surf rod to pair with a VS150 this winter. Something to throw around 1 - 3 ounces. Current rod that I built in 2007 has seen better days. Any recommendations on blanks? Typically like stuff on the lighter side, smallish butt diameter and such. Thanks

Gsb1081L. 3 oz too much but will do mag darters to ss darters.
Gsb 1081M will handle 3 oz but too stiff for light stuff. Lots of power though.

I need to replace my Rainshadow 1088.... Let me know if you want to do a run down to CMS to look at/pick up a blank.

My original 1088 was out of Capesams personal stash. Best all around 9' I ever had. Backcast caught lure on a lobster trap/trash ball down on the reef last year and destroyed it... Pilot error.

Another versatile blank is a 1087. Fiberstar was a great blank if u can find old inventory.
I loved the Allstar 1087. Should of never got rid of it.
ODM 3/4-4OZ.

Yup, Allstar 1087. I have a conventional wrapped AS 1087 that I plan on re-wrapping to put my VS 150 on :). Lighter gear for the smaller plugs i'm now building. Just have to push responsible C&R....
