Ok, seeing as you're looking for offers... $50 and I'll pay the shipping cost as well. It IS an old rod, after all.

Ha! Well, ok, you've got the high bid. I have one, it's my favorite rod by a huge margin. I haven't caught a trout with it in almost 3 hours.

Searched eBay and saw one sold for $300. Seems pretty high but would make me happy.

BTW thanks to all who replied and sent me messages. Going to check around a little more before I put a price on it.

Pete, sure hope that ebay rod price goes up. $50 wont buy me much of a wader.

That's how my 8'3" 5 wt Tight Loops looks. I cleaned the handle with Simple Green and it looks new. Love that rod.
