WTB: 8 wt Spey rod

I'm looking for a good quality 8wt, 4 pce Spey rod, 13 - 13'6", suited to casting Skagit lines with heavy tips. As yet, I haven't dialed in on a particular make, so thought I'd post here to see what's out there.

I happen to have a Redington RS4 14' 8wt 4 pcs, in great shape, no marks or scrapes of any kind. I did put a protective preservitive on the cork, looks nice. The RS4 8 wt is a fast action rod, for me it throughd a 650 Skagit with a14' t-14 a mile. These rods list for $350.00, with a life time warranty, I'm selling for $150.00 to your door.

Do you have a price range, or perhaps a manufacture that you might be interested in? There are many rods in the weight and length you describe.

I'm thinking somewhere in the $150 - $400 range. I'm still relatively new to speycasting, so am looking for a somewhat forgiving action that can handle heavy tips and large flies. (think Skeena steelhead)
A transferable warranty would a good feature.
I am also considering building a rod, but, with the all-in cost of components, feel I can likely find a good, used rod at a better price.

Thanks for the responses so far.

I have a Behula Classic 13'6 8/9 I would be willing to sell for 280 plus shipping.

Very good shape factory sock and tube.

Here are specs etc from the manufacturer, I can send some pics if you want to discuss further.

Edit to add warranty stuff should be easy as Nile creek on the Isl. is a big Behula dealer.

Also have Skagit and Scandi heads to go with it.

Located in the Yukon so no border issues.
