OK, I tried this on eBay but the re-listing fees rub me the wrong way, so here it is, again, price lowered. 9 foot 6 inch 8wt for chasing steel and the like. The VPS is built on the same blank as the RPL, so you know it's a peach of a rod. It's got a medium-fast action by the latest standards, loads up really well, has a lot of power to throw line. I used an 8 wt line on it, but I've read that many like to overline the VPS/RPL by one weight. I literally used this rod 3 times so the cork shows just a little discoloration. Otherwise absolutely perfect condition. Comes with the factory tube, sock, and blank warranty card. I got a two hander to buy, so someone's going get a great new 8 wt rod for a really good price of $250. If local prefer to meet but will ship at your cost.
