    Cleaning out my closet and found the following. I used to build custom rods and these are my some of my less-used personal sticks. They're all in good condition and are mostly used as noted in description.

    Not really interested in any trades - the only possible would be a 3wt trout reel and even that would have to be something very specific (< 3oz, click-pawl). I made the mistake of finding an even more expensive hobby - you thought fishing was bad, try flying airplanes!

    7'0" 1/2wt 2pc Dan Craft Signature III, 57 mil modulus. Labeled as a 1wt by manufacturer, but I found it loves a 2wt line, a real dream in tight quarters. Surprising power in the butt. Simple finish job, superfine grip, slide band over cork reel seat. Single foot stripping guide. Weighs a whopping 1.4oz. $175 shipped to you.

    7'6" 4wt 5pc Batson Forecast RX6. Standard modulus graphite, the best rod in the RX6 series by far. Love this little guy for travel and packing. Fishes well with a standard WF4, and even better with a delta-type taper. Mmm. Fenwick-style grip with burl bands, slide band over walnut reel seat. $125 and it's yours.

    NO PICS AT THE MOMENT

    10'8" 7wt 4pc Batson switch. Neat rod, just not seeing a lot of use since I've gone over to the trout side. Built as more of a single-hander than a switch, 8" fore, 3" aft. Loves a WF8F or a 250-300gr skagit setup. Simple finish on this one. Lots of talk on this board about what it likes line-wise. $175 shipped to you.

    8'0" 4wt 3pc Loomis IMX. This blank was bought in 2005 from a former outwrapper for Loomis, labeled as a 804-3IMX. I finally got around to building it up and it hasn't even seen water yet. I would place the blank as a late 1990's vintage. Wiggle test says it would like a WF4F or DT3F. Sweet moderate action and quick recovery on this one. Slide band seat over maple, custom cork, black frame blue insert stripper, black single foot snakes, a sweetheart of a trout rod! $175 shipped, though I may end up keeping it...

    You might get more interest of your custom builds if you add pictures
