    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.

    Thanks MoscaPescador. Yes, i know the greys and z-axis both great rods, but i'm looking for a blank to build my first rod. Thanks for the answer.

    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;)

    Link isn't working .... try ...

    Batson Enterprises - World's Premier Supplier of Fishing Rod Building Blanks and Components and work around to the blanks.

    These are super people to work with.

    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.

    Hi again mates. At the end i found the blank. This is a 11ft 2/3wt tres pieces. But now i have the problem of the guide chart. How many guides and distance among them? Thanks.

    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
