Hi wyefly,

I have never used them or even seen one. Mud Hole Custom Tackle sells the Gatti blanks and you might want to talk to them about the blanks. Are you wanting to build a rod or buy a complete rod?

If I were you, I'd hold off on an E bay item. Here's the guy that is the US distributor. Great guy named Brian. Gatti USA GATTI USA HOME PAGE
From what I understand they are a dynamite rod. Light and accurate. Very well built.
Tell him Mojo sent you.

I used a buddy's 4wt Gatti, absolutely loved it. Tried to buy it from him, but no dice!!! Caught some really nice fish on the Frying Pan with it, hooked and fought a 26" or so bow in the toilet bowl, lost it due to pilot error, rod did not let me down!

I have built a few Gatti's, and had to warrenty one. Sadro Gatti(Owner) was pretty good about it.
These are the lightest rods I have ever used (4 and 5 wts). Gattis has a couple of lines of interest ( the progressive blank and the tip actions). I have fished them both. The Tip actions are wonderful with dry flies, but are a little sluggish if you use big nymphs (12 and above) in the weights I have used. Don't get folled into thinking they are not strong because of their weight. I have put mine through some pretty demanding bends and they have always come out good. The warrenty and people are as good as I have every worked with. They take some time sending replacements, but have never given me any hassle.
If you want more info, contact me. I am not a distributor or anything, I have jsut had some good and bad experiences with GATTI
