    ok steve. I have a 12 foot Barbel rod built on a 1 and a half test curve Harrison blank. Lovely rod. I use it for worming for Salmon/Sea trout and carp stalking. One rod I would reccomend, and I am not sure if the blank is available but I will have a hunt, is the Daiwa Amorphous 11 foot 6 stalker rod. Its a real beauty. Its 1 and a half pound test curve, but U can lock it up to bully powerful fish away from snags. I know guys who used it for Pike on the broads. But, it is forgiving enough to trot a loafer float etc with 4 pound line for chub. Wonderful rod

    As a pro rod builder who gets blanks from Harrisons, I can supply not only 'standard' blanks but also 'specials' in several different finishes and colours. Also cork handles, rings, reel-seats, twin-pack varnish, whipping threads, rod bags etc. Look @ my website:

    The 12', pound and half Harrison Interceptor was designed by some bloke named Marsden I believe.

    You're right, the TC was rated at a generous 1lb 12oz. A slightly lighter model was rated at 1lb 10oz.

    There u go Steve, sounds like my Leatherbarrow is the answer. Maybe you will get a fishingmajic discount...hehe

    I must admit, I am impressed with Harrisons blanks, except I felt the Ballistas where way too soft..but that is another thread.
