I've never seen a two-piece spey rod or blank; and if one could be found, it would be too costly for the intended results, since spey blanks are "priced by the pound." One-piece spinning blanks are a more fruitful line of inquiry. I've built two fly rods from long (9-1/2' and 10') glass blanks. Both were useable, slow in action, with the ability to handle a wide range of fly line sizes.
