G Blanks RX8+ purchase

Recommended Posts

I've read alot of good things about the G-Blanks rods and thought I'd pick one up to try,   I spoke with Larry and the rods in the works.

I went with an RX8+ 6'6" MXF and grabbed a new Daiwa Tierra 2500, going to throw weightless Senkos and other lighter baits.

Anybody useing the RX8+?

thanks DD, from what I've read these are supose to be some real nice rods, I think yours was the black on black in which inspired me to have 1 built.   I was kinda hoping that someone in here was familiar with them.

your rod was built with a batson blank and im pretty sure thats there top of the line blank

i have 1 of there cheaper models and i must say i really like it so i know u will love urs

i bought a jaw breaker rod which is a 7 foot med rod and it was built on a rx8 blank and man does that rod feel sweet

the only pro is theres about 14 inches of ice between me and the water so i cant try it out yet

matthewj52001, thanx for the reply, I think thats what Larry said the RX8+ was thier top of the line blank, I fish with Loomis rods but I wanted a custom look and this was the only way to get it.

Although I did seek out several builders using a Loomis blank, and the price was over $300, that was the IMX blank, heck I can get GLX spinning rod for around $200 used if I wait it out, I just wanted to go for a certin look.   I bought the reel already on the flea and just waiting for the rod. I told Larry no hurry tho, Im in the same boat as you. ICE!

As a builder I don't know a great deal about G-blank rods and don't use them, but I can tell you that G-blank is using a US made blank in the (RX8+) that it is actually built buy St.Croix.

Maybe that could help ease your mind..

Good Luck & Tight Lines Soon!!!
