    I know Lamiglas made them for awhile in a Chestnut color and their description said it's lighter overall in weight and faster action than e-glass, and supposedly the best grade of glass available. I owned 2 Twelve footers and sold e'm both :embarassed: wish I had kept them an awsome rod in it's class!:big_smile: I think I can get a few 12' blanks in 2pc. S-glass. Hope this helped you out.

    The S Glass is 30% stronger than E Glass for a given weight, it's also double the cost of E Glass. You will indeed be amazed at the faster recoil and greater lifting power of these wonderful new blanks. Very strong blanks, hard pullers!
