I'm looking to build a 40lb (stretch to 50) class rod for a Stella 8000 and wanted to go with something lighter in weight than a 700M. I keep coming back to the United (GUSA) blanks but I've had bad experiences w/ them in the past. Someone please post your happy GUSA stories so I can talk myself into trying one yet again. I'm thinking a URS70XH but am open to suggestions. Want to stay w/ United as opposed to 100% graphite GUSAs cause of the fiberglass scrim.
