Nice work! I'm guessing 10'8" on that blank.

Not to hi-jack your post. But i've been looking at building a switch rod for nymphing and overhead casting. When choosing a line, do these blanks go by their actualy rating or for instance would i buy a 6wt blank to fish an 8wt "steelhead taper" line. Im not going to use it for any type of spey fishing.

Thanks for the info,
hope you sell this!

Batson Switch blanks

Batson switch blanks are labeled with a single hand line designation. They are all true to their size . A 5 is a 5 and so on.
All Good Things,
