    Factory Elkhorn Traveller fly rod, 10' six weight, 4 piece rod, with rod sock. This rod is in excellent plus condition, and is ready for summer steelhead, bonefish, bass, big trout, and more!

    Here's what was said in Fly Rod and Reel a few years ago about the 9 foot 5 weight version in an article comparing 'budget' travel fly rods. A similar description could be applied to the 6 weight, as well.

    Rated a "medium-action," this is a fairly stiff rod, but not the kind that takes a shorts-rending effort to cast at close and medium distances. It is pleasingly adaptable to a variety of casting strokes and is very smooth with all of them; it responds best to a quicker tempo, but doesn't require it.
    Though not my first choice for fishing fine tippets, it is an outstanding all-around trout rod in other regards-it has the touch for dry flies, the power for big nymphs and streamers, and the line-lifting strength for boat fishing. And the casting range-if you're into that kind of thing-is impressive: you can push this rod hard and it simply won't fold up. It made me want to get out on a flat with smaller bonefish. Best for anglers who appreciate a stiff, but smooth and light (3.3 ounces) rod. Lots of performance for the money.

    This rod for sale is a great deal for $110.

    Here are some web links for more information.
