This rod is in beauty condition. It excels as a small-stream, pocket-picking tool. The graphite II is not as inherently stiff as the III (loads very well in close), and is a more durable graphite than III (or IV, for that matter), as well. Super accurate. Down-locking slide band reel seat. This rod is light, easy (brainlessly) loading, accurate and rare. $150 FIRM.
