Geez I wish you'd posted that a year ago while I still lived on the Oly Pen. I'd have given you a couple good ones for nada! when I was packing for the move. Don't know where you live, but I'd keep an eye on Craigs, too. In a couple of weekends I'm sure I could hunt up a fine rod for a bargain in somebody's garage or basement in Western WA. But somebody here will certainly chime in if you tell 'em what you want to spend. Good luck.

Check eBay, or elsewhere, for the Aventik IM-12 11 1/2 foot, four piece, "7/8" (it's really an 8 weight) switch rod. Fast action, handsomely appointed, and with an extra tip. It casts a 560 grain Skagit head very well. And it costs around $130, perhaps less.
