Don't know anyone, but Anglers Roost Enterprises boo blanks are all made in China. Thus the low cost. Their generic blanks are $75 to $79. Their "Presidential Blanks" based on famous tapers from the past are $125. According to ARE they are defect free. Just keep in mind that these may be perfectly fishable but will have little value in the future. They might be just as good an investment as say buying a low-end vintage rod like a South Bend or a Montague tho--cuz they aren't going to have any future value either. American boo blanks are going to start around $400.

Golden Witch, scroll down to pg 22 or 23

Get the sample pack, practice on the A- Culm, use the A culm for rods

Exodus 29:18
Then burn the entire ram on the altar. It is a burnt offering to the LORD, a pleasing aroma, a food offering presented to the LORD. God loves BBQ!

I was looking around for decent blanks and components to build a rod. One of the forums mentioned Headwaters Bamboo Rod Co. I checked their website and ended up buying a 7ft, 4 wt based on a Payne 100 taper. They have a 30 day return policy and a lifetime warranty on defects. Price for first time buyers was $315 for a two piece, two tip rod. These are obviously made in China but the quality was surprisingly good. Best of all, it cast like a dream. I don't think I could build a rod for that money. Anyone looking for a decent cane rod to fish, not collect should them out. This is going to be my North Georgia small stream rod. (but I'll still keep my Sage 3 wt near by)
