    I bought this from a member on FlyBC (where I am also Tarp Man) and fished it a couple times for cutthroat and larger stillwater trout, but just picked up a TFO Deer Creek in a 5wt, so this is redundant. The rod is in 8-9/10 the forward reel seat was enlarged slightly then reinforced with rodbond? It is strong, and the adjustment is extremely well done, you cannot tell with a reel seated on the rod. The cork is probably a 7/8 on the clean scale, other than the reel seat change it is undamaged. It comes with the segmented rod case.

    It is rated to throw heads from 275-350grains according to St. Croix. I fished it with a 6wt Rio Grand singlehand line which performed well, and tried the Rio Switch line on it in the 4/5 size (a little light I thought). I also tried a SA 30' type 4 sinking shooting head that really sailed.

    I would like $150 CAN plus shipping from Quesnel to Washington. I can take paypal as payment. Pictures later today.
