I am very interested to buy my first lamiglas blanks. It must be 9' (about 270 cm), because commonly I am fishing from coast.
I want to use that rods for topwater lures (poppers, zaras ...), max weight aboout 1,5 oz (about 40g).
I will use that rod for pikes (freshwater) and sometime for some saltwater predators (bluefish, barracuda).
I prefer blans because if you suggest me some freshwater blank, I still can put it some salt resistant guides and use it on sea, but you also can nominate some rod.
