There are several companies offereing excellent modern age fiberglass flyrods these days.Winston,Diamondback,Scott,and Lamiglass are but a few.All of these are top of the line rods.I'm not 100% sure which offer them as blanks though.

Lamiglass makes a good selection for very reasonable prices. Anglers Workshop in WA has all of them in stock.

You will be paying serious $ for Winston, Scott and the major manuf. brands.

I like the 6'6" 3wt for small streams and bluegills.

Regards,
FK

Smile Fiberglass blanks

Hi,
Steffen Brothers are generally considered to be the best fiberglass rods currently made (steffenbrothersflyrods.com). The quality is outstanding and the price is very reasonable, about $120. There have been several discussions about their rods on Clark's Fiberglass Rod forum (http://p205.ezboard.com/bglassflyrodshopforum), which is where I learned about them (No financial interest.)
I hope this helps. Good luck.
Jack

fiberglass

I would consider the Diamondglass rod by Diamondback 1st. Blank $147.
Then Steffens. Blank $120
Lamiglas blanks, may have been discontinued?

There are others, but these are the ones that will sell you a blank.

Lamiglas has them in 6'6", 7', 7'6" and 8' in both 2 and 3 piece models, and they retail for less than $75.00.
