    I built a rod on a Diamondback blank 12 years ago, and broke the tip within the first season. The blank was warranted for life, but I couldn't get myself to put all that time into the wraps again! I must say though, that custom grip shape looks mighty comfortable and may convince me to build my next rod when I find a "need" for another one..

    I just looked at the Batson site, those blank prices are phenomenal!

    Nice trip report! Loved both rods ... love small stream flyfishing as well.
