I have a almost brand new Scott A3 11' 8wt switch rod that I picked up from fleabay. The rod was broken at the tip secion at the female ferrulle. Other then the break the rod overall is in gorgeous shape. The cork and reel seat are in excellent condition. It really never looks like it has been fished. It has been inspected by a professional who thought that in the rods best interest would have to be sent back to Scott to have a new tip section rebuilt. When I contacted Scott the cost would be $150. I have an upcoming salmon trip and and in need of a rod ASAP. Looking for something budget friendly. I would be willing to trade rod + $$$. I can post some pictures when I get home from work. Let me know if your interested.
