Sorry I did not get back to you right away. Yes, I still have the Xi2. It is brand new, never had a reel on it. Just needs a home where it can be used. Let me know if you are interested. It is a sweet rod, incredible technology with great touch AND lots of power. I seriously would use this for steelhead no problem, and even Salmon up to 20 pounds or so because of the power.
