This rod has never been fished before, just been on one boat ride and had a reel mounted. NO scratches on the blank at all, it's absolutely MINT. It is very very light and is comfortable held under the arm, although I haven't jigged with it at all before. Rod was bought from Angler's Pro Shop but did not come with a rod sock, but you won't need it. Rod spec: Type: Conventional Length: 4'4" Rod weight: 260g Rec Line: PE4 Lure max: 300g Grip length: 530mm Pack length: 134cm Max load: 10kg @ 45deg, 4kg @ 90deg This rod normally retails for over $500 brand new. Asking price for this rod is $290 shipped in the continental US. Can do local pick up in DFW. Can take PayPal with 4% or Bank Cashier's check. PM me if you're interested.
