I purchased this rod back in December as an update to my 11' 7wt BIIX. After fishing it twice I've discovered that I prefer the older rod (Maybe it's the fish karma on the old rod). Asking $730 + shipping which equates to $100 off retail. When you factor in your tax savings it's about $170 off the price of a new one. Includes factory tube, sock, and blank warranty card. Will post pics when I get home from work.
