On the Piscifun rods, aren't they Chinese? I'd rather imagine they copied the St Croix taper, but who knows. I have read that all the fishing stuff out China comes from one town/province, all pretty much a single company, but again, I don't know. There are 7'9" and 8'4" one piece blanks that would work, but you'd have to custom build it I think. It would be hard to pick a 5/6 blank without being able to feel it first because they aren't marketed as "flyrod blanks". As for Piscifun..... I'm really not sure. There's nothing on any of their rods or reels that says "made in China", and I know that at least part of their assembly happens in the UK. And St.Croix doesn't spin the Imperial blanks in house, they are imported. The word "Imperial", the word "Piscador", and the fact that anything I try to order direct from Piscifun with my debit card results in my bank flagging it and calling me for confirmation on a transaction in England......is all I have to go by. If you take a Piscifun Sword and a St.Croix Imperial rod out in the sun and look at them side-by-side it's a dead match (shade of color, degree of transparency, scrim wrap spacing, and all). There's also the curious coincidence that Piscifun emerged right about the same time that St.Croix went STUPID. tjm 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
