I'm looking for a fairly moderate 8'6 blank that can handle 30+ lbs of drag when needed.

It will be paired with a seigler lever drag.

Needs to be able to fit a size 18 reel seat.

So far I am looking at:

Black hole nano popping. The bottom section measures 18.2 with almost no taper, I think an 18 will fit with a little reaming.

Phenix titan popping 860h. Waiting for measurements

Mhx mu108xxh with 6" cut off the butt. Real seat will fit, but I'm not sure if this blank will handle the heavy loads.

This will be replacing a surf ii heavy cut to 8'6 that I really like except for the size 20 reel seat.

Thanks, I just looked at their page. It looks like they ship from NZ for $35, I am not sure what that means with customs and excise tax. I will stick to US based, thanks though.

Rainshadow>> RCJB106H-CG... cut 4" off the butt.. makes a great tool..
I guess I am a little confused. I just looked into this blank a little more, its listed as 30-60lb and extra fast and nearly 1" butt diameter.

X2 on the Thrasher long blanks. Thin diameter and very strong. Jason charges only a flat fee of $35 to ship, regardless of length. ($400+ blank purchase ships FREE). One of the best values for quality, made in USA blanks...
