They are the "same" blanks as Thorn Brothers.  I don't have one personally but most of the guys I fish with use them and like them a lot.

I highly doubt they are the same as Thorne Bros. Similar maybe but not the same. Thorne has theirs made only for them.

I have a Thorne Bros power noodle and just picked up a replica quiver stick from hardwater customs off eBay. Not even close in quality. The eyes on the replica qs are as cheap as they come. The rod is so stiff a 2.5 inch moonshine minnow doesnít bend the tip and you canít feel anything bite it.

I use All Hard Water Custom Rods. 2 Power noodle 28" and 24" with split EVA grips and they are great rods, sensitive, with back bone!, Quiver stick is more to heavy side of action but still does its job. Got 2 Walleye Medium Sweet heart with EVA grip and  coming next week  :) All in all these are $40-$50 rods. For the price they are great!

I have three different rods from HW Customs. They all perform well and look good to me, but I fish alone a lot.
