Thanks Last Place, I've heard others say the same.Do you happen to know where the blanks are made ?
The original Diamondglass rods were made by Diamondback (formerly REC) in Vermont. In the early 2000s Cortland purchased Diamondback with the idea of moving the operation to Cortland, NY. The equipment moved, but the people didn't. Fortunately, the equipment ended up with Mike McF rather than the junk yard. Cortland sold off the last of the Vermont made blanks and began making blue blanks overseas.
Eventually the Diamondback and Diamondglass names were sold off to Nate Dablock around 2015. That is the current version of the company that is making the Meeker glass rods
. I don't know who rolls the blanks. I would expect the website to be very clear about anything made in the US. I don't currently see an option to buy just the rod blank.
