I really don't want to have to build this rod. I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction. I've only been looking on the web so far but I can't find what I'm looking for. I have a one piece 5' light action spinning rod with blank through construction that was made by, of all companies, Remington. I bought it at Sears many years ago. I need to replace it with something similar due to a cracked reel seat. I've found a lot of rods that are similar but I can't find one with blank through construction. I rely on that so much to feel what is happening on the other end. The rod blank itself is exposed on top above the reel and I put my thumb on it. Any ideas?
