WTS: Custom Built Batson Rainshadow 8 wt switch

I have a Batson Rainshadow 10'8" 8wt switch I custom built. Matte black finish with gold single foot guides, xtra large gold tip top, and gold stripping guides with titanium inserts all wrapped with black metallic thread tipped with titanium colored thread. This rod has a lot of good mojo on it also. Has been fished maybe 5 days with about 5 steelhead and a few bull trout on it.
It works great with a 450gr skagit or overhand cast with 9wt SA steelhead taper WF line.
Sweet rod I would part with for $225.

Has been a great rod, but decided to sell as my spey uses about the same heads and I tend to use my spey more.

I've got the 13'6" 8wt Rainshadow spey and I've received numerous compliments on the performance. Rainshadows are schweet sticks.
