A quickie rundown of fiberglass fly rod blanks currently on the market. I've heard rumors of additional blank makers bringing products to market in 2010. I've limited the list to rods made from fiberglass and originally designed for fly fishing. That leaves out blanks like the TFO MiniMagnum (mostly graphite) and the Batson SP series (spinning rod blanks). If you know of blanks I have not included, please e-mail me at jgestar@fiberglassflyrodders.org. I've linked to a producer blank webpage where possible, or a Wiki page. The prices I've given are the list prices.
