NFC Blank Rating

When production rods are not enough, it's time to go custom. Come share your experiences building and/or ordering a custom rod and tell us if you'll ever go back to off the shelf.

NFC Blank Rating

Post by Hobie-Wan Kenobi » Sun Jul 01, 2018 8:56 pm

I am looking to build a rod similar to the Kistler Helium 3 MAD (at least in my head). I am looking to build a moderate punch rod. I'm looking to get a NFC blank.

I'm eyeing up the HM Flip 764-1, HM Flip 765-1 or the HM 766-1.

From what I've understood so far, NFC blanks are generally less powerful and slower in taper. I don't need a beefy rod, as I live in Northern Michigan.

Anyone has any experience with these blanks?

Will be pitching 3/8-1oz, with 3/4oz being most common.
