    I came across some E-glass blanks in the 7' or 8' range. Then are rated 20-40 lb and 20-50 lb range. Has anyone used E-glass blanks and was wondering how they held up?

    I am a new member to the site. Currently I am working in Afghanistan, and this site helps pass my free time away. I really enjoy it. I think I have read about ever article on here, picked up a lot of useful information.

    Good thinking about building some boat rods and Mudhole.com has 7 and 8' blanks pretty cheap......and these were a good price........

    Hopefully they will be biting when I get in in Dec......calling it quits out here after that....
