Yes. They can be based on a number of rods. But the material is different. The new black roddy blanks are cheap enough to thrash, and basically didnt cost much to build. I make and sell them with basic fuji guides for 100$. They are okay blanks, but they often have a lot of material defects.

Do the defects effect proformance or is it more of a cosmetic issue?

To me they dont affect performance, but yoy have to really inspect the blank. Some have extra glass, right where a guide goes, so it wont affect anything. But some are missing glass in some places, and that can cause bad fractures.
