Default rod dilemma

I have a chance to buy a Berkley 5/6 wt rod with a Courtland reel at a very reasonable price.
Take or leave?

It better be very reasonable
Berkley graphite rods are bottom of the barrel.
The old fiberglass sticks were a little more respectable, depending on the model.

I was afraid that would be the case. I'll let it go. Thanks.
