Ok guys, I need some help. I am looking to build a 14wt rod. But i need some help on blank selection. the plan is to use this rod for short casting to sailfish and boiling tuna. so i was thinking: 7'0"-8'6" extended full wells grip thats about it. there are a few of design requirements: it has to fit in my board bag, so it has to break down to under 6'7" has to cast at least 40ft has to be less than $200 That's also about it. I have heard of people converting spinning rod blanks and hotshot blanks, modifying (cutting the tip) longer fly rod blanks, but i don't really know where to start. i am all ears. no set or preconceived notions. Any suggestions?
