    Default PNW Halibut-Lingcod blank

    I have made quite a few salmon-Steelhead rods, but never a bottom fish rod. Could you please recommend a good rod blank for Oregon-Washington coast Halibut and Lingcod. Deep water halibut might require the use of 5lbs lead.

    Thanks

    HI Toolie,
    We recommend the TS66MH blank.

    How about a guide type recommendation?
