|This rod was available
at $95, Bill H. has spoken for it.
This rod features some prototype work, including a mix of
diamond/spiral wrap. Also one of the first reel seat inserts
I've ever turned. Additionally, the grip was not finished
with U-40 Cork Seal, but rather Gloss Man-o-War Marine Spar
Varnish. Worst case scenario, I might expect the gloss finish
on the grip to wear off, perhaps becoming cloudy (which could
easily be fixed with a refinish). This rod would normally
sell for $175, but considering the "prototype" nature
I've made a price concession for the lucky person who ends
up with it.
