Brand new never fished or even fit together 13 foot 7/8. I did get ambitious and take the plastic off the cork but that's as far as I got. Great year round stick that is capable of a lot of good. Very forgiving action that sings with a 540 compact skagit, 480 and 510 scandis depending on your taste and throws a delta 7/8 a mile. Rod, tube, card and sock for $275 conus plus shipping.
