This is a New Switch Rod from Blanco Rods and Tackle. https://sites.google.com/site/blancorodsandtackle/ This rod is made from IM7 graphite and has a Medium Fast action. The Finish is a nice pearl blue sparkle with royal blue wraps and metallic blue trim bands with a macaw feather inlay. It has titanium colored snake guides and hardware with top quality cork grips still wrapped in plastic. This is a good way to get into a switch rod at an affordable price. I also offer new aluminum tubes with brass ends for 40.00, rod bag for 10.00, and an Allen Alpha 3 reel 149.00. All for less than $340.00. I can order the line of your choice if requested. I have one of these Switch Rods ready to go and two more being built. They go quick.
