    wanted a 4 or 5 weight switch rod in "like new" or gently used condition

    Might sonsider a 4wt spey rod if it is on the shorter side on length.

    Have you taken a look at the 11' 5wt St. Croix Imperial rods? They're US made and run about $250-270. If you can't find a good used rod these are worth a look.

    I have a Beulah 4/5 Switch Rod 10 foot 6 inch that I have used twice. Thought I would use it more but use my 9 foot 9 inch single instead. Can send pictures if interested. $275.

    Just trying to help:
    These rods care more about grain weight than if a line is a scandi head with running line or a single-hand steelhead line.

    If I were you I'd jump on that Echo. You won't regret it. Paired with a 240gr scandi compact or 270 scandi versitip. You will be slaying trout!

    If he doesn't respond someone posted a new one in the classifieds earlier today for 270$. That one may be in better condition. From his posting it doesn't sound like he fished it.
