Got my new GBlank rod

Recommended Posts

I got a new Gblank rod for Christmas but it didn't arrive until yesterday.

It is a Batson RX7 6'9" Medium/ F-XF rated for 8-12lb test. I plan to use it for shakey heads, flukes, t-rigs, and weightless senkos. $125 + $20 shipping

I am extremely happy with how it turned out. It is beautiful and very light. I plan to match it with a Citica 201E.

Sweet.  I ended up with one I found here in the flea market last fall.  Looking forward to getting it on the water in spring.  You got a nice looking rod there.

Nice rod, I love the "all black".

Yeah, I do to. That's pretty much why I ended up going with a custom rod. I couldn't find a mass produced "murdered out" rod in my price range. I only wish I could afford a Core to match it with. Oh well, I think the black handle and spool of the Citica E will match well.

Yeah, it probably would but I'm brand loyal. ;D

Beautiful rod! I'm thinking seriously about a new g-blanks myself.

Call Larry Mitchell up and talk to him about what you want. He was very helpful. They have a lot of options and great prices.

Looks even better than I imagined. Feels great in the hand, too.

woah........dude, that looks tight. I have both shimano and ambassadur(sp) revo sx. the revo is a very nice reel. i,m gonna have to agree with daviscw, it would rock with the sx.

on that note, i think i;m gonna have to get me one of those g blank rods myself and hook it with an sx!!!!

I think Larry picked up a couple sales off this post, he's at a show in Texas now and will be back on Mon, how do I know you ask?  I just emailed the day this post came about and Im looking into a spinning set-up.  Dressed in black of course.  Nice looking rod,  and for the $$$ I think it's worth a go.

Great, I hope they get a few sales from my recommendation. Then maybe they can get a website worth a #&^#.  ;D

I agree with you there, a couple snapshots at best isnt enough.

I've been emailing him so I think Im going to give 1 a try.  He said he'd get back to me after the show with different rod blank options.

That is their website. Pretty weak but give them a call, you can get better information on more options. The prices listed are for lower end blanks, while they offer higher quality blanks for more money but you need to call to find out about that stuff.

Their website has been the same since '04 or earlier.   Their rods have changed though....they made their name on shikari SHX blanks, and now they are made on bastson blanks.  Regardless....the rods are quality and I wouldn't hesitate to order one.  I'm glad someone ordered one like I would....I honestl can't see why with today's market you wouldn't offer something like that as a staple.  A rod like that gets people fired up.....

theres truth to that statement, I was a lil fired up when I saw it, like I mentioned earlier I may very well give one a try. I'll look into some of the other blanks as well to see whats offered.  Black on black is a must, that is very nice looking, and from what I've read these are nice rods.

I would love to have one of those beauties and that's a great price. The Citica looks nice on that rod, although I don't see how any reel would look bad on that rod.

LOOKS awesome, I have been considering trying one. What do you think of the RX7 blank they use? What would you say it compares to, in comparison to other rods? weight, sensitivity.....

I am with you guys on the black on black looks tough!!
