Default Merry Christmas to me

I was in the local Gander Mountain today with my father. I came across something that I just could not walk away from....even against my better judgement....

I'm a proud owner of a 7'-6", 2wt, 4pc St. Croix Legend Elite....Retail was 299.99...got it for 131.00 out the door. They have at least one 2wt and two 3wts left at the same price (124.99).

I had to go ask someone if this was a mistake and if it came with the tube....Almost felt as if I was stealing it...except my credit card company loves me to death...I still don't know how I feel about a 130.00 panfish rod...

I have owned two of their rods, a 7'9" 4wt, and 7'6" 3wt. both were great casting rods. You'll like it no matter what your're fishing for.

I think that you mean a Legend Ultra. The Elite doesn't come in a 2wt.
The Legend Ultra is also a wonderful rod. Thanks for the tip....... I'll check out my Gander Mountain store.

Damn, you're right.

Doesn't really matter, I got a great deal. Blind hog finds a nut every now and then....

Dig around and find out how many pairs of shoes she has.
Good chance you'll be able to use that as leverage
