Hi friends,

So why spam and a new thread at every jump? Could just update your original thread.

Sorry about that. Good point about updating the first post. I just tried to delete this post, but can't.

Congrats Matt. I wish I needed another rod in that range. If you get this off the ground will be producing another blank?

His previous thread has talks of a second blank down the road. Kind of why one thread is great is all the information stays together.

Good luck with your endeavor.

Hi friends,

As of this week the project for the custom rolled blank is fully funded! The number of rods ordered has far exceeded my expectation. There are still 9 days left to get in on the order. Thanks again for your support.

Sorry, I don't follow. Are you asking if the blank is made by Pacbay?

Definately not a PacBay rod.... its a home grown design. Read up on the project here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...lank?ref=email

Matt came up with this taper after compiling a wish list from about 150 builders. Bring it on Matt, I am ready to build/ field test the Aurora

+1. I order two blanks for myself and one for a buddy who wants a 5wt. $90 for a blank and matts cork is a great deal. Known Matt long enough to know that if he has a taper he likes it will be a nice rod.
