If you want to stay with a Breakaway blank and don't mine a 9' section; the 1508 and the 1507 full length are 13'.

I wouldn't rule out those two rods but i'm really intriqued by the
tournament rods from england.i believe most of them are built for revolving spools,which is why i'm looking for a blank or a used one to rewrap.

I agree with the 1507 or 1508 also, if you want one from overseas the PurGlas would be a little less expensive option that will measure up. The 400-2 3-6 oz. or the 400-3 5-8 oz are both 13'2". For an English rod I'd have to say the Zziplex Primo Synchro, but I do know were a fella could get a deal on a Conoflex Rakata.
