Bamboo Fly Rod - 7'6" 3 piece (with extra tip) 4 wt
 
Lightly used, great condition. Excellent casting and a presentation. Interchangeable tips provide slightly different actions. Custom built.

I know this is a crazy question but any what this might be worth?

Between $50 and $1,000. It's impossible to tell without knowing the maker's name, etc. If no maker's name is present, there are ways of determining an approximate value, but only in person.

This was posted on a local Craig's List.

It turns out the maker is Weis and after a night of thought he decided he wants "at least a couple of hundred".

I Googled Weis Bamboo, and found this: bamboo fly rods,fly rod,fly reel,fly line,fly box---weis fishing tackle

There aren't any prices, and they do manufacture their stuff in China. That's also were Tonkin bamboo grows, so you never know. Chinese bamboo rods don't have a big following here, but some people think the Zhu brand is a good vaslue for the money: $175 USD.
