There was a pile of the 7ft and 7'6 CGR rods in the bargain cave for $30 each. Couldn't get myself to buy one because I'm over budget on gear and didn't REALLY need anything in that weight (and I dislike their reel seats). But $30 is a hell of a deal. According to the tag, the only thing that was wrong was that a buckle on the tube strap was broken or messed up somehow. The rods appeared new and still had the plastic on the grips.
