I have Beulah's newly designed 4 piece (w/xtra tip) 9', 5wt rod that I have used only 3 or 4 times. I have too many trout rods and am in need of a new/near new fast action 9wt saltwater rod. The TiCr-X rod falls in the same price range ($40 less). Or.....if anyone is interested in buying the Beulah rod, I'll let it got for $200 plus shipping. http://www.beulahflyrods.com/products/guideseriesrods/guideseries5wt.php I can take pictures of the Beulah and post them later today.
