I bought this rod new a few years back and have used the heck out of it. It shows signs of use on the reel seat and the cork is soiled. This has been my go to rod on the Guadalupe River and in the local neighborhood ponds and creeks. I have landed carp up to 7 lbs on this rod and it handled beautifully. Hundreds of bass and bluegill have come to hand on this rod. It is an absolute canon to cast and really excels with a WF5F line on it. It casts a 4 weight line just fine, but I really think this rod likes to be overlined. Asking $125, shipped or trade for other gear (plus or minus cash is ok with trades depending on what you have).
