    This Dan Craft FTL 9' 6wt 6pc fly rod has been fished for a week total and is in like new condition. Top quality components and workmanship. I have since built another FTL 6wt rod for personal use with a different grip shape, guides and reel seat so this one is for sale.

    Struble U-22 reel seat with birdseye maple insert, Struble 7.5" full wells grip & fighting butt, Fuji Alconite stripping guides and 7mm top, PacBay Minima running guides, Olive thread wraps, folding hook keeper. Also included is a matching extension section which extends the rod to 10' 2" long. I have fished it with the extension and it makes a fantastic Indicator Nymphing rod.

    Rod has CCS ERN of 6.49, AA of 66, meaning it casts very nicely at typical 6wt distances with a WF6 line with a medium fast taper and quick recovery. This rod is a great streamer / hopper rod for the bigger Western Rivers. It shoots line effortlessly and smoothly.

    The 9' rod weighs 3.79 ounces, and balances nicely in the grip with a very light reel like a Lamson Litespeed 2. The rod has a very low perceived swing weight. It is a USA made 57 million modulus blank with carbon scrim, and casts like a 2pc rod. The rod sections are only 20" each making for a very easy to pack travel rod.

    I'll let it go for $175 shipped - "rod only". It will ship in a rigid ABS tube. I am also open to partial trades on Winston BIIX 8'6" 4wt and 9' 6wt factory rods with wood reel seats.

    PM me if you are interested.
