Thanks for the info. It's a nice rod, and it is in mint condition.
From what I understand, this rod is very comparable in construction (blank material, winding check, etc.) to their current Diamondfly Series, albeit with more traditional reel seat hardware. That rod is spec'ed at 3.1 oz. and I can see where the additional nickel silver insert on that rod would account for the additional 0.1 oz.
Basically, I am just making room in my rack for a 4-weight rod and offsetting a portion of the investment in that outfit.
