    Selling an Abel "0" Big Game, non-ported, matched with a very nicely handcrafted Sage RPL 4 weight, 4 piece, nine-footer. Both are in excellent condition. Rod comes in a Landmark aluminum tube and the reel is lined with 4DT floating Wonderline. Asking $180 for the Abel and $250 for the Sage, or $400 takes them both. Offers considered. Photos available. Thanks all.


    Hope is that Thing with Feathers..

    Is the rod factory or custom? Why the Landmark tube and not the Sage factory tube?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the questions. The rod was custom built (e.g., "handcrafted" like the ad says...) and so the rod tube is a Landmark. The craftsmanship shows in the wraps and other work. The rod is very nice and little used. Photos available.

    Dropping the prices... $160 for the reel and $230 for the rod. $375 takes 'em both. Thanks again.

    The Sage factory "handcrafts" its rods, too . . . they are all made by hand ("handcrafted").

    Just wanted to clarify things.

    Thanks for the detail!
