FS: Scott ARC 1287
Scott ARC 1287-3 for sale in good condition. The rod was bought here on speypages about three years ago and has been a total gem. I hate to get rid of it but I haven't been using it lately and it deserves to be fished.
There is one issue with the rod, however. At the beginning of summer steelhead season, I broke off the top 1 1/2" of the tip section. For a quick fix, I simply put a new tip-top guide on the rod. Since then, I've contacted Scott about fixing the rod but unfortunately, the warranty is non-transferable and it would cost $100 for the tip and $45 for shipping/handling/processing. I've decided to sell the rod as it is rather than invest $145 to get 1 1/2" of the rod replaced.
The rod fishes very well in its current condition. The tip-top guide has been securely glued and the rest of the rod has no other issues. I could not tell any difference in the rod between its former length (12' 8") and its new length (12' 6.5").
The rod fishes a 510 Skagit very well or a 7/8/9 Windcutter. This rod is a favorite of many speypage participants so if you're interested, I suggest you do a site search on it and read the reviews. You won't be disappointed. Rod was bought for $350 a few years back and I'm selling it for $225 shipped conus.
I will email pictures upon request. Let me know if you have any further questions.
