The Pac Bay blanks and rod building kits would provide you with the inexpensive blank and components you are looking for while being very serviceable. You ought to be able to get a complete Pac Bay kit (blank, reel seat, guides, cork, thread) for under $100.00 (in fact, I think trout rod packages can be had for about $75.00). I know there is a catalog only fly fishing operation located in Plattsburg, NY who carries them. The Pac Bay blanks are inexpensive, but decent quality made mostly of IM6 graphite and based on proven tapers.
