I recently built 9' 7 weight on a Batson Forecast RX6 4 pc blank. It has a chrome aluminum reel seat, chrome and blue stripping guides, and blue snake guides. I've come to really like these forecast blanks. I was going to keep it for myself, butI I just have too many rods as it is. Would make a great summer steelhead or pink salmon rod this summer. Asking $100.
