Rainshadow blanks are being discontinued and are marked down for clearance. Available sizes are shown above. These Rainshadow fly rod blanks are built by Batson Enterprises and feature their 43 million modulus graphite RX7 technology. Their action is medium-fast. Using up-to-date carbon fiber materials, this blank is priced low enough for the novice rod-maker but performs like a pro. Inspected for consistency in action/flex, specifications, color and straightness, all imported Rainshadow blanks carry a limited lifetime warranty for manufacturing defects. The finish is a clear matte (dark gray) or glossy Olympic Green.

Two piece for performance

Reviewer: A viewer from Glendale, AZ US

If your concerned about rod performance, get these 2 piece blanks. Graphite fibers run the length of rod... with only 2 seperations, versus 4 with the 4 piece blanks, you will get a smoother more linear loading of the rod. Add single foot guides... and you will improve the perfromance even further versus 4 piece rods at a higher modulus assembled by manufacturers using snake guides.

Awesome blank!

Reviewer: A viewer from Alexandria, MN US

Bought this blank to build my first fly rod. I was on a budget and since it was my first attempt, I didn't want to wreck a more expensive blank. I am very pleased with the blank and the finished rod. It has performed flawlessly on the rivers and I would definitely go with the Rainshadow blank again for my next rod!

Right Blank/Right Price

Reviewer: A viewer from Nampa, ID US

I've built dozens of rods over the years and this winter was looking for something in (or slightly above) the rainshadow price range.
I built 3 rods ranging from 3-6wt. I have been very pleased with the look, feel and castability of the rods. I was particularly impressed with the 7'9" 3wt blank.
I have recommended a number of these blanks to friends here in Idaho and all have been very pleased with the end product.
Personally, it reminds me of the old Loomis GL3 blank for feel and I was always a fan of this blank too.

Outstanding Blank!!

Reviewer: A viewer from Lyme, CT US

I built this rod for my wife to use trout fishing on the Housatonic River in Connecticut. This rod outperforms a much more expensive Sage blank that I built for myself. I can cast tighter loops and farther than my Sage VT2 9' 5wt. rod for a third of the price. I now know what other custom builders have known for years. Rainshadow blanks are great inexpensive rods.
