any thoughts on the ODM one piece blanks

I am seeing 10 and 11 foot, 3/4 to 4oz in the pics but 1-5oz in the description, med-fast action. Any input would be appreciated.

p.s. also looking at the RodGeeks from time to time.

i have the 11' 3/4-4. it is a very nice rod. i think med-fast is fairly accurate. a little more progressive but seems to recover nicely. i did not fish mine as much as i was planning last season - no fault of the rod, i just found a different rod to be in my hands for most of the season.

Built a genesis 2-6 11' 1 piece. Soft tip with mid backbone. Cast minnow plugs to 4oz needles. Light weight rod feel. Most the weight in butt section. Built with new concept layout , makes it a very light static weight tip.
