It will be interesting to hear your thoughts. I am told they do not differ much from the RX7 except in weight and strength.

The Eternity series I have yet to see a in depth review.

It'll be interesting to hear about The new Blanks however I'm about to order a couple of American Tackle Matrix Blanks as last year I built a 9Ft 8Wt & took it to Alaska.
I again took it this year & bought a New Rod from Cabelas in Anchorage which was Broken which was later replaced so I reverted back to The Matrix it performed great throwing Large Streamers & Wets as I caught some Really big Salmon with it.

The Revelation line is completely new. It replaced the RX7. The new Revelation has all new technologies thats evolved. The blank is stronger, faster, and lighter in some applications.

The Eternity2 a few people on other forums has received them and has loved them.
