I just got a beautiful rod in on a trade but its a little too slow for my tastes. Its a factory 9.5 ft 9wt Scott ARC. This rod has been out of production for a while but seems to hold some sort of cult like appeal for steelhead and salmon fisherman. Here is the link where I found info on them: athttp://www.jabo1.com/assets/projects/scott/sfr/Rods/powrarc.htm This rod has slight coloring of the cork but the blank is flawless as far as I can see. Really pretty rod too.It says they were $560 new so I have no idea of a value now. I would trade for sage rods or reels in the 6-8wt category. Other offers accepted as well. Just Try me.
