Looking to either build a bottom fishing rod (maybe some trolling) to go with a Shimano Speedmaster 16 with 80lb braid with anywhere from 40-60lb top shot. Have tried to research these blanks and have come across several but am unsure where to even go direction wise. I like building rods, just haven’t done it in a while and like the challenge. Anyone help me select a blank? Would like a 6,6” to 7’ to fish 40-80ish. Would like to keep it light and slim blank if possible. Thanks!

That has been in my radar. Looks like they have a kit for that rod that would be sub-150$. How do these compare to some of the shimano offerings at that price level? Would love to build one with an acid wrap guide setup.
