I bought this rod on this site a month or so ago. Really to much for rod for what I want to do with it. My mistake is your gain. It had never been casted when I bought it. I lawn casted it and realized my mistake. New retail is $190 + Tax. I'll sell for $100, plus shipping From the manufacturer: The Redington Voyant fly rod is a high performance option that provides excellent value for money.
