Rod Blanks

5 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find the last foot of fishing rods. I'm trying to finish some ice fishing poles that I started 3 yrs ago x-mas and want to finish them. I would need about 20-30 of them. Or if someone had another idea on what I could use. I tried 1/8 in. brass but that has no feeling to it.

Was in the Bargin Cave at the Owatonna (MN) Cabelas last night. They have a 5 gal bucket chock full of rod ends - most are in the $3.00 range. There are various weights.

Make sure you look them over - found some that were broken.

Most of them are graphite.

Thanks UG. I just checked on HSOList and they had ice fishing blanks. So hopefully I'll get them. About $0.40 a piece.

Capra's in Blaine will have graphite rod blanks for a pretty cheap price once there ice fishing stuff is out (or maybe they will have them out anyway). I built a rod from the materials at Capra's, good quality.

Good Fishin, Matt.

    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
    • Forget adjusting the current tax system, we need to flush it and start over.
    • there might be a point on them look at about the 1:09 mark in the video, looks like something there; but i would be hesitant to buy one until some more info comes out about them
    • Don't forget those lower healthcare premiums for the middle class.
    • I'm not sure its his back that is ailing him now. It certainly may be, but what I have seen is his stride isn't what it used to be. His right leg doesn't seem to have the push it used to. Lou Nanne commented the same thing on Barriero's show yesterday. It certainly could be his back, but he had a knee injury last year that he tried to play through and had a "lower body" earlier this year that some said was the result of blocking a shot. I really don't think playing in the World Cup was a good idea for him. He has missed so many games the last few years only to add a few more on top of it? Not a wise choice. Correct, that is how I understand it. The front end he could be getting something like $13M salary and the backend $5M, but it will all average out over the term (13 years) which results in the cap hit of $7.5M.
    • That must be pretty noisy? The ones at the top probably could be eliminated. You might still consider a ceiling huger fan, I bet you use a generator more than you think you will.
    • That is good to know.   
    • I would go further and say that the connection is a consensus.   It doesn't seem to have been verified by actual chemical analysis but the timing and geographic distribution similarity is pretty convincing.     One interesting thing is that a lot of people ate a lot of sick cows in the UK and some other parts of Europe, but not all that many got vCJD.   Thousands of cows, maybe as many as 400,000, and 177 cases in people as of 2014, with a few more each year.  
    • You can do it yourself with froth packs at Menards. It expensive but at the price you were quoted it would work out but you still need a warm place to do it.
