Default Blanks That Have Similar Action to Redington CT 5wt

I'm just wondering if anyone knows of any blanks that have a similar action to a 9' 5wt Redington CT. I know of a place that has the CT rods on sale for $109, but I rather wrap my own. I have a couple nice reel seats I purchased on sale for only $8 and want to build a 5wt.

One of the seats I'm going to use on 10' blank I found on Ebay that was inexpensive that I want to see if it will make a decent Czech Nymph rod. Even if not the only build will be cheap enough I won't be out to many $'s.

These blanks may not be the same as, however here are some good choices that will not break the bank. You might look at Batson RX6, Pac Bay Rainforest 2, Cabelas PT+, Matrix, or a Tiger eye blank. There are also some choices on ebay that may fit your need.

The mudhole mhx's will be a nice medium to medium fast in the lighter weights, as soon as you step up to 4 and above they become fast action. Great blanks!

What action does a 9' 5wt Redington CT have. I may be able to tell you, but I need a tad more info.
