    I rarely do this but making an exception. I see people spending money on the Made in China rods and think if they would look a little a good value pops up from time to time. Here might be one.

    Tim's blanks are well respected, but he is not one of the top builders so they are reasonable. The taper is one of the great 4wt tapers. Can't speak for the build quality, but just as long as he did not mess it up it is a great rod to try bamboo.

    No kidding. A great price, a great taper and a very good builder. This will be snapped up quickly. If I wanted another 4wt like this I'd jump on it.

    That is a GREAT price for that rod. I have the same rod built by Zietak that I love and I paid well north of $1000 for him to custom build it for me. Somebody should grab that rod. Very cheap price for any quad.
