Big Stick Prototypes price reduction and fish catching guarantee

I was out on the water yesterday with the newest prototype and I am jazzed up with the progress. I have to move the old ones out to help fund continued development. I have reduced the cost of the rods to $90USD and I will personally guarantee that you will catch fish with these rods at some point in your life.

The quest for the perfect rod continues but the prototypes are building up and I thought I would sell some off. The prototypes did not hit the targeted line weight and are 7/8/9/10 weights, I from what I could tell. They threw those lines with no problem at all. The action of the rods I would say is progressive. Lighter lines cast from the tip and heavier digs into the cork.

Please see the pictures of the handles and wraps below. They are the same on each rod. Just the lengths are different.
1: 15ft
1:16 ft Sold
1: 17 ft

Rods are $100 USD plus shipping.

Also always open to trades, even outside of spey gear. Hand wood working tools are always good. If you have planes, saws or chisels kicking around you do not use, that would be great.

Regards
Brayden

I had some people back out or change their minds. The 15 and 17 foot rods are still available. I am open to offers.

I fish a 15 foot and longer rods almost exclusively now and some of the rivers I fish are not that big. I like the line control and they are a hoot to cast.

Due to the fact I had a great day fishing last Friday, I am going to lower the price on these rods to $90 USD.

Just a quick Review of the 16' I bought from ZC I first started with a very well used Galeforce 63'+- 7/8 with the 30lb cat fish running line. I liked a lot but seemed a bit light and hard to manage in the wind. I then put on 680 scandi extreme that gave the rod a better bend and was a joy to cast. I also just added a 15' med sink tip just to see if it would go and it did quite well in fact, but my single spey needs some work when throwing sink tips.

All in all nice stick for the price and it catches fish so I guess I have to keep it!
