Steve Jenkins was also offered the offshore blanks from Cortland,Steve put up some very nice looking rods on the blanks,Steve after all is a Master Rod Maker in his own right ,the qwerty was the offshore rods were not embraced by the public.
The Color was kinda a turn off for starters,The Action and Feel of them was a miss,especially if you compared them to the Vermont Made Black Glass Rods,disappointing at best.
The Black Glass Was The Standard.
When I purchased Steve's left over Fiberglass Blanks,After Steve decided fiberglass wasn't really his thing,the remainder of his C.T.S., P.L.G. and Diamondback Blue Glass.
After a time due to my failing health,I passed on most of the blanks to a rod builder acquaintance it seems with the exception of Steve's CTS Glass that I had already put to good use.
If your lucky enough to get your hands on one of the Blue Diamond Back Rods made by Steve Jenkins you would be in luck.
Like any fly rod, test cast it before you buy. If you like it, drive a good bargain. No tube, no bag, not black glass
Not Black Glass
being your key bargaining chip.
