I first want to thank Lamiglas for this forum and for all the expertise that "cruises" to help each other. I am on an adventure to create a Bass rod for my Nephew. He is crazy for Bass fishing and I have been taking him for many years now.
I need an application specific rod blank. It needs to be short and stiff. We fish in creeks that are narrow and very stumpy on the bottom. When bass strike it is fast, you have to set the hook and hog'em out. A running fish will cut your line on a stump or limb. With that said . . .
Length: 5'-6" -6'-4"
Sensitivity: Needs to be sensitive.
Reel: Revo S
Line: Power Pro braid 30 or 50lb.
I haven't been able to find a blank with the above specs, so my thoughts ran to finding the right blank but longer and trimming the butt end.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
