Default G loomis blank

Several years ago (ca10) I bought fly rod building kit from cabelas for about $175.00 with loomis three piece blank in a 9' 4wt size. I built it and since it was my first effort at rod building, I can assure all of you that it is no work of art, but it has held together and is one of my favorite rods. The action is slightly slower than my zaxis but faster than my slt. As with most loomis rods it had a 3 letter designation. From my description, does anyone know which loomis blank it is?
Thanks,
barham

Just came across your post. Have you tried contacting Cabelas to inquire if they have a record of the transaction stored in their computer etc.?
IMHO, it is more than likely an IMX blank ; hard to say without paperwork
or their conformation. Would be interested if you find any info about the blank. Luck!
