I have an ultra light casting rod made on a NFC 5'4" spin jig blank. An old school Calcutta Conquest 51 lives on it but maybe I need to try the BFS on it. I got on a kick of making casting rods out of light and ultra light spinning blanks. Some worked out great some not so much. While I like fast and extra fast rods it seems that for BFS a little slower blanks works better, at least for me.

Find a used Daiko BRSC-64L and never look back. ;)


I'll have to pull mine out from the dusty dark, I forgot I had it until seeing this thread. I've been using an old Kistler Helium LTA, I mean really old rod for my UL casting duties but I think the Daiko is about to get resurrected!

You could try to find a st croix legend inshore extra light powered rod. 6'6" and I've casted down to 1g with it.

I've had my eye on these. I really dislike buying a rod and not being able to handle it before purchase.
My most recent internet purchase ended up with a rod that just felt to light to me but from a very reputable maker (EDGE) that exchanged no questions asked at a local show so i ended up leaving with several others............
