St Croix out of the blank business

Postby RodGuild » Mon Jan 21, 2019 3:59 pm

St. Croix has stopped offering rod blanks to the custom rod building public. They will make a select few available but only through their ghost company Rod Geeks. No more distributors, no more blanks. Take it to the bank. They informed the Guild of this over the weekend.

And if that wasn't enough they also informed the Guild that our yearly event at the place in Park Falls is now cancelled forever. No more blanks, no more reason to bother with custom builders. So the Guild has now lost the only decent event we have each year and even that one wasn't much. Thanks St. Croix.
