That rod looks great, could you pick up the rig for less than $775.00?

If I wanted to sell those would the major manufacturers put me on a blacklist?

Default Re: Classic rod

I hope you do a review and let us know how it casts for you. Is it true to it's designated line weight? It has the appearance of a custom built, stiff tip rod!

I wager if you were hungry you could score a dinner with it

It looks like a high modulus nanostick. Put a black hook keeper on it and $775 is a no brainer...oooh....paint the "handle" red and call it "nanostick red" and you can get another 100 bucks.

Default Re: Classic rod

I recently found a similar rod in the woods. Unfortunately, there was no reel on it. There was no lineweight recommended on it, but I think it would cast paracord. I haven't fished with it yet, but it was very effective on a pinata
