Custom CTS Affinity-X #8, Switch rod

This a Custom CTS Affinity-X, 11', 4pc, #8 in perfect condition that I built for my own use. Has not seen any fishing exposure. Grass casted only. I have too many.
The "X" is CTS' fastest blank. Butt is very firm. Tip is soft.
CTS' specs: Fast Taper, Fast Action, 57 msi graphite blend, Helix Core.
Built in 2009.

The rod for sale is the middle rod in picture. I am leaving town tomorrow until Monday. Will send more complete pics to anyone interested. May not be able to answer questions until return home.

Stripper and next two guides are Fuji Ti SiC ceramics. Running guides are REC recoil. Tip-top in REC recoil. Blank finish is CTS' P2000. Which is their plain graphite - no paint. For the lightest construction.

Wood burl in grip is Box Elder Burl - Double dyed - Brown and Black.

The cork is of excellent quality - no filler. Rings are layed-up one at a time on blank. Then turned down.

Upper grip is 8 3/8". Lower grip is 5 1/2". Total grips and reel seat 17 5/8".

Seat is REC aluminum.

Conditions of sale: One week to advise me that buyer wishes to return - reason need not be discussed. Buyer pays return shipping.

Please do not test cast with fly attached.

$375 shipped with sock and tube.
