I have a Sage 10903 RPLX in excellent condition that I am willing to let go for $250. Many a striper, blue, and fat albert to hand using a WF 11 Intermediate line for quick casts off the beach, and a 10 wt on a boat. Love this rod but I just don't use it anymore. Please PM me if interested.
Buy a new TFO Pro II for $170 retail. You'll have $$ left over to apply towards a good reel or a line or two. The rod is just like you describe you want, a medium fast action rod that casts super nicely and, if it breaks, TFO service is arguably one of the tops in the industry.
Homes, I speak big medicine on this one and you know I won’t steer you in the wrong direction.
