Anyone manufacture 'spey length' glass rods?

    By pure good luck I was able to get a 11' 9wt(educated guess here) glass blank and had that built up into a 6/7 'switch rod.' Total delight to cast and fish. Run the Internent into the ground looking for additional blanks this length (or longer) with 'no joy.'

    Any thoughts?

    Fred I've seen glass spey rods in the UK. Not sure if any new ones are being made.

    CTS over New Zealand can customize your glass blank for you, 10' 11' 12' as you wish... Their blanks are exceptional good quality and on the $200 ish range

    Exactly! Mr. Walker sent me a 10' walker vintage, and that is a real blast to fish with!! Thank you sir!! : )

    Fred,

    Try Speyco. Tim lists a 12' 6wt fiberglass spey rod there, and perhaps he'd work with you on a blank of a size you'd like?

    C Farlow made a 12'6" glass spey and have seen a couple old Eagle Claw 14' glass spey rods years ago.
