Looking for a one or two piece 5 or 51/2 foot XUL spinning rod blank, can also be a flyrod blank same length in a 1 or 2 wt. batson sp600 or like. Open to suggestions. Wanting to build my own, (first build) and I don't want practice on an expensive blank. TIA

Netcraft has a cheap fiberglass 5ft blank that makes a nice fly rod for $13.98 (297-111x) you can also get a all cork grip for 10.95 (250-734) it makes a nice 2-3 wt

Some other options are practicing on a section of an unused or broken rod (I learned on a butt section of a busted St. Croix), or on a dowel rod.
