Hi guli,
I do not know of any 11 foot 3 or 4 weight blanks that are available.

Greys makes a 10 foot 3 and 4 weight rod called the Streamflex. I believe that Sage may make its Z-Axis in a 10 foot 4 weight configuration.

I've got a Cortland Brook series 10' 4 wt and as I've already told here,I really enjoy this rod...it's not very expensive.I think it won't be easy to find a 11' 3 or 4 wt blank.Have a look here.http://www.batsonenterprises.com/index.php;)

Is this for single handed fishing? Dont think you will find one, nor would you want one. Amundson has a 3/4 wt 11 foot spey rod, for about $260. You can get a blank too, about half te cost of a rod, so about $130.

Yes oregonsteel it's for single hand. I found the cts has some good stuff but it's too expensive. Any of you have one or knows some brand that uses it. They are interesting. Thanks all.

Not sure I'm right but I think....lenght of the rod +1...that means 12 guides...maybe 3 guides on the first piece(butt one),4 on the second,five on the third

Anderson Custom Rods here in Southern Oregon puts out very light 2-handers that fit that range. Don't know if Gary will sell just the blank, but you could always ask. Actually, they're a bit longer than what you're looking for, but Gary may have some thing on the shorter side (or have one rolled for you).

Here's one more right at 11' in a 3/4 line wt. http://www.amundson.ca/flyfishing/wi...rior_spey.html
