Rainshadow XSW68MX
      #412772 - 04/07/11 09:14 PM

Got another project to build on one of the new Walleye RX8 blanks. I know I say this about the XST all the time but I really like these blanks! Simply unbeatable at any price. The fact that they are available at a great price point makes them a no-brainer anyone who is serious about getting real value for their investment.

I am not a paid spokesperson and am in no way affiliated with Rainshadow, Batson Industries or its Affiliates foreign or domestic I just really like their stuff!
