happy monday guys :D

Has anyone here had any playtime with the new rainshadow composite jigging blanks. I've head some say they are faster than most cheap freestyle rods with more backbone. anyway i was just trying to compare the mudhole rods with rainshadow rods.

it's extremly had to find info on rainshodow blanks...

sounds good. can you guys post a quick pic of the finished rod?
how do you like the jigging action of the rod?

I'm thinking about either the mudhole or the rainshadow

I bent both at the ICRBE this weekend and liked the rainshadow better. IMO the mudhole blank bends into the handle/butt and the rainshadows shut off more at the handle/reel seat.

If you have some time before you need to build/fish the rod then you might want to wait for the XL-lite blanks that are coming out. I have bent the prototypes and they are unbreakable, super light and will kill some big fish. They are probably going to be a bit more expensive than the mudhole or rainshadow though.
