Nice builds Hans. I especially like the Blue Halo. I saw Itch's last month and it is just an incredibly attractive translucent blank in the sun.

Dewayne, to me it was an easy decision to buy on Blue Halo, a small American company, the blanks are economically priced, good quality and cast really well. I've never met Cortney (the owner) but he is a great guy. He is always there to answer my questions and never disappeared when I was over critical.

Itch has 5 weight and 7 weight; I have built the 3 weight and 5 weight. Now is your turn. By the way, the second generation is a bit faster than the first.
Last summer I tried their demo 3 weight and it was 1 gear slower than this 3 weight I built. You'll enjoy building them.
