GLX blanks are not the same as CC GLX. The GLX tapers are not as fast, and the wall thickness is slightly less to reduce blank weight. CC needs maximum strength for big fish and aggressive fish fighting, and so we made the decision to beef up the wall on the CC designs. The GLX blanks are more like a fresh water medium power, fast action design.
GLX blanks can still be used in saltwater and cast very well. Some might even prefer the slightly less stiff action of the blank compared to CC. This is a personal preference decision.
