Default Sage GFL 790 DS value and details? 9' 7wt, 2pc

Hi guys, I was wondering if you know any value and knowledge of this rod. I'm fairly new to fly fishing so my knowledge is minimal. The ad says its a Sage GFL 790 DS 9' 7wt. It comes with the Sage 108m reel and a fly tying kit. Is the whole set worth buying for 200 bucks?

That definitely sounds like a great deal! Sage rods alone went/still go for far more money plus you get a reel AND fly tying supplies!

Sage DS rods in really good condition sell in the $150 range.

If that rod is the length and weight you can use, that's probably a great deal. What condition is the rod in? What size, type, etc. streams and species do you fish for?
