When I took the weights I realized the way the scale presents the weight doesn't help much so... I'm looking for one on amazon so I can get more accurate weights.
So far the blanks feel pretty darn nice and resonate nicely. I'm debating what to do with the guide train. My last couple rods I built I used recoils, but I may go titanium alconites for these guys. Also going to experiment with hiding reel seat hoods, normally just cut them down, sand off the rough spots, and use a winding check.
Anyone else receive theirs?

I 3rd. Great guides and lots of sizes and styles. The single foot K belly guides are my favorite style. I keep redoing old rods I like with them in my spare time.Hogsticker2 wrote:I think Fuji Titanium Alconites are the best bang for your buck. Got any better close up pictures of those blanks
Here's some more pics. Sorry, was hard to get my phone camera to focus.

Check rodhouse.fr. Theres flexing data. Curve seems to be almost identical with every weight.Mleblanc02 wrote:Do you have measurements on the SJ 736? Just wanted to get a comparison between the SJ 736 and the MB 736.
