Anyone happen to know where I could snag a 10' 1wt to build into an ultra light euro nymphing stick to be a nice back up for my custom ESN

I notice a huge difference from those entry level rods to the rods in the 300-400$ range, then jump up to my esn and h3 euro rods and the differences are silly, and I wouldn't dare step into my beat or my flight with a max catch rod wouldn't trust it to take the beating the rods in competition take

I looked at those, and they peaked my interest, will probably snag one before Christmas, but I just bought myself a 10' 2wt Masternymph bellator. I'm actually trying to track down a blank that this rod builder uses as I dont like his build quality and his use of burled cork.

If you click on the link that John R posted, you might find that the right-hand column gives the prices for blanks. I also noticed that they include a 10'2" 0-weight rod as a 4-piece. Wow!

I've looked at them in the past, if I was to build one I'd be looking at 4-600$ depending on what components I use, but I'm quite happy with my Master Nymph Bellator as nothing I've used can even come close to comparing to it
