I'd also say no for the quoted reason. Also, my tastes/preferences in rods have certainly changed over time, I might end up wanting to sell it myself. But I also agree with Ard--get what YOU want! Good luck.Unless I were famous, no. It would probably lessen the value of the rod when my heirs have to sell it.
Och, Munro ye bampot, if you're going to that much trouble, get a better drawn one than that.
With my friends in Scotland and Ireland, that seems to be the thing, LOL. I don't haggle. I was taught to pay what is asked, and if I don't have enough for it, save till I do, or forget it.
That may be true for plastic rods, but not necessarily for cane.in 20 when you pass it on the value will be minuscule except to those who you've built memories on the water with and fro them the name will add value.
