Hello, Could anyone tell me a little bit more about this rod? I'm woundering to buy this from a friend, but I would like to know a little bit more about the history first. I've read that Diamondback did use a Chines components/blanks when they got this produced. Is this correct? Is 500Usd a ok price? The rod is in mint condition, two tips and a original alu tube. Thanks for all help! All the best from Norway!
