Blanks

Hi everyone, hope you all are well and have been able to do some fishing!

Question re: blanks...
Larry, you've mentioned progressive taper rods a few times. I haven't seen any company or blank use this term (yet). MHX has a Mag Taper blank- would you consider this a progressive taper blank? Will you point me towards a blank you'd consider progressive taper?

Thanks!

usually mag taper means a really stiff butt and soft tip, but sometimes it means just plain stiff! In all likelihood the closest thing you might find to what i call a progressive taper will be referred to as "moderate", but there is no guarantee of that either! I'm working on a couple right now, but really can't say who or what blank that's in existence today would fall into that designation.
