Might be the wrong spot, but I couldn't find a rod building section. I'm looking for advise on blanks. I'm needing a ridiculously stiff 8' rod. I have built a few im6 8' extra hvy but they just are not cutting it. Has anyone used tuna popping blanks or possibly musky blanks? Any help or ideas are appreciated.

Sounds like you need a shimano jigging rod used for butterflys straight down on braid. Those rods take an extreme amount of abuse. If it can haul up a 75lb reef donkey in 125ft of water it can handle a flathead

We do it on gibbons creek under big trees. Flipping stick with braid and a slip.cork and piece of perch or shad. Nothing like setting up on a 40-50lb blue cat
