This rod is essentially new as I have only test casted it. Bought this rod from an online store at a discount as the reel seat came with a scratch on it which was later covered up with black permanent marker. It is barely noticeable but it is there when the light hits it a certain way. Everything else on the rod is excellent (guides, blank, sections, cork). $300 CAD. Shipping extra. Accept Paypal or EMT for Canadians.
