Frank,

I have seen a few rods built on Burkheimer blanks - all excellent and good looking rods. People who use them seem to like them and recommend them.

One noticeable incident with a Burkheimer blank was a snapping sound when a 9' 10 weight broke in three pieces on a tarpon strike in Mexico! Could have happened with any rod. The guy striking did a very good job of stressing the rod to the extreme. I had the chance to fish it before it broke. A very nice rod indeed.

This is the rod before it broke

Martin

Andy Dear runs this company...there is an article on this site about his work. He is a distributor for burkheimer...call him. His contact info is on his site. Andy is extremely knowledgeable regarding blanks...he will have more detail than you will care to hear I'm sure.

He is a class A guy
