This rod was bought with the idea of going Trevally fishing: didn't happen! It is brand new (never used). The original cost was $600.00. I will sell for $395. Also posted separately is a ROSS "Canyon" BG-6 with a spare spool that matches this rod. This reel has never been used and has backing only on both spools.The reel and spare spool cost was originally $625. Total for the combo then was $1,225. I will sell as a combo for $700.
