logic_factory is on a distinguished road
Default looking for extra-fast action blanks; specifically 10ft 5wt

i am no longer willing to tolerate the large inadequacy of my 8.5ft 5wt. the saving grace to this rod, which has keep it my only 5wt for about 15 years is how fast the action is. i have now started to cast other rods in preparation for finding a solution. i have tried a "fast" st. croix legend 9' 6wt rod and even with a 5wt line it flexes more than my rod. i also tried a g loomis glx 9ft 5wt. this rod was much closer to what i have now but i would still like something faster, if possible. if i have to get a 4 piece blank i will but i want to possible have some extra fast action blanks i can maybe pick throw. is this a realistic goal?

thank you for your time.
