Second- I'm not sure about American Tackle but Steeldrifter (Steve) is your 'go-to-man' about Matrix blanks.
(I don't know if AT are the only ones for Matrix or not )

Their quality from what I have seen has been good, without any real problems. the blanks look pretty cool with that woven graphite type look. If i wanted a good rod while not spending a ton of cash, that would be on my list to look at.

“If you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you'll spend your life completely wasting your time. You'll be doing things you don't like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don't like doing, which is stupid. Better to have a short life, doing what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way." - Alan Watts

Matrix spinning rod blanks are equally impressive and a great value for the dollar.
Some don't like the woven twill on the butt section, while others really like it. So if you're building custom rods for people that could be a factor to consider. Too fancy of a burl grip could be a bit overwhelming.

The blue RX6 Forecast I have built on, only the 7'6" 3wt do I like at the rated line weight. I have to overline the rest of them to get a feel I like from them. To me, the overlined Matrix is slower than the 7'6" 3wt Forecast with DT3.
So if you want a moderate 7'6" 4wt Matrix, buy the 7'6" 3 wt blank and overline it to 4wt. You will have that moderate feeling 4 wt you are looking for IMHO.
