Currently I am able to offer all CTS products direct from the factory - Including:
- Graphite and glass fly blanks.
- Single handed and double handed fly blanks,
- Float Rod Blanks
- Custom designed surf (fly) blanks to handle 600-800 grain lines.
- Conventional and spinning inshore boat and surf blanks - including the venerable vapor Trail.
- AND - on occasion - I may even be able to have a discontinued blank "rolled" for you. Don't be afraid to ask.
NOTE: NONE OF THE DELIVERY COMPANIES (FEDEX, UPS, DHL, ETC) WILL SHIP A BLANK LONGER THAN 8'8".
So the days of one-piece 11' rods shipped internationally are over. CTS, however has perfected a ferrule system that allows the tip section to measure 8'8" and the butt will make-up the balance of the blank. Once epoxied together, a caster can not tell the difference.
Delivery time for a CTS blank has, in the past, been problematic. It has been addressed by concentrating the factory's efforts on the more popular blanks. Thereby speeding-up the delivery time to 4-8 weeks.
