that is a pretty big discrepancy on published vs actual weights... hard to make up .35 oz!


I was thinking the same thing! Love the blank though

And the woven grip? Did you remove it from a different rod?

Re: Point Blank PB731MHXF

This is disappointing to read. I recently built a 701MHF and it's OUTSTANDING.

What blanks did you order?

Re: NFC pricing

Hm that is interesting.

When I ordered my xray blanks I called them and they actually picked up! They assured me the new xray blanks were essentially their new flagship blanks... Never really noticed the price difference before. Perhaps it has to do with the model as there are more HM? :doh:

Re: Aftermarket handles

The Ray's DIY carbon fiber handles are pretty cheap coming in around $30. I have a few and they have great. Visually they look like the ZPI handles. I've been eyeing these quite a bit lately! Seem's like an inexpensive solution to shave a tiny bit of weight and add some extra length. HEYO! :mrgreen...

Re: ALX Enox

ALX makes great rods.

I don't think the Enox is produced domestically, but if I still bought a lot of production rods I'd definitely consider it. I still have a dragger that sees regular duty as a C-rig/Flipping rod.

Re: Blank comparison

I am eager to hear your reviews. Okay, now I've tested it.. Probably best rod I've ever fished! As sensitive as NFC MB 705 HM, but much more power. That's what I wanted. 8-) Much more sensitive than St. Croix 5C70MF. Haven't landed any fish. Got one nice bite, but missed it. Tested small spinner, 9...
