Looking specifically for about a 15' , 9 or 10 wt, progressive "traditional" long line taper that will cast something like a ballistic vector XL very well. If you are not sure I can ask some friends.
A combination of already spending way too much on nice rods in the past year or so that I actually fish with, and the fact that I am not going to be fishing such a rod any time soon, or anywhere near where I live...probably.. means I'm looking for something inexpensive, probably that is in the back of your garage, but casts too nice to simply give away. It will be an educational rod only. Cosmetic issues, no problem. Oldest, ugliest thing you ever laid eyes on. No problem. It just needs to authentically be able to cast a nice long line, not just be 15' long. I'm sure that there must be some good casting but butt ugly rods out there that could use some love. Of course it doesn't HAVE to be ugly, just relatively inexpensive. If it needs a little work of some kind, that may not be a deal breaker either.
Oh, and if anyone has a burkie 9145 that accidentally had paint thinner poured over it for a few hindered bucks I wouldn't sneeze at that... yeah, as if! ;-)
EDIT: Found one that will be perfect, thanks.
