Well I purchased this Rod on 5 June 2016. Arrived on 7 June 2016. Have maybe used it a dozen times. Still n perfect condition just to soft for me. I paid $149 for it. And am looking for $120 shipped to your door for the rod and factory decided tube only. Reel and line not included, it will go onto my 2wt replacement rod. Either a 2wt TFO finesse or Echo Carbon XL if anyone wants to trade.
