Default Am Tac Matrix blanks - anyone use one??

Anglers Workshop has these blanks on sale right now for $45, they're normally $75. Listed as mod-fast. I'd like a 8'6" 5wt 4 peice as travel rod.

Just wondering if anyone has built one up and how they like it?

I have a 3wt 7'-6" blank that I picked up at Cabelas for $20 on closeout. Built it and it casts great. Doubtful it'd compare well with a $$$$ rod but IMHO it casts as well as some $250 rods I've cast.

I'm looking at the 2pc 12wt blanks for a song. Will probably pick up one, too cheap to pass up.

I suggest you do same and we'll give reports back.
