    Ill take the Xplorer 12wt if your'e selling them seperatly!
    Condition??
    Around the steel no tortur'd worm shall twine, No blood of living insect stain my line;
    Let me, less cruel, cast feather'd hook, With pliant rod athwart the pebbled brook,
    Silent along the mazy margin stray, And with fur-wrought fly delude the prey

    This is the most used rod of them all (50 - 60 fish and about 10 milion casts ), tip (eye) needs to be replaced, some fine rust on the stripping guides, once you have recived the rod you can decide what it is worth to you, I will refund the amount that you think you have overspend. postage on a rod is 50 bucks.

    I am going for the TFO Axioms, (the 12 wt is not available now but should be soon)

    If I don't get a 12 Axiom then I might go for the Hardy Zane 12wt.
    Baisicly the reason, is to get familiar with new rods so that I know what I am talking about if I must sell one. Sa after two years or so I might replace the rods again to get fimiliar with the then "new" rods.

    The reel, I don.t use it any more.

    I wonder how many ff (myself included) have bought budget equipment when you start flyfishing, only to realise later that a compromise is not quite good enough.

    Then back to break ther Piggy and buy the best you can get...

    I have a buddy that fishes a local "brand"' 12wt and calls it his disposable rod. Givin that he takes at least 3 on a trip and normally breaks one...

    So in the end it all seems pretty penny foolish to me...

    Ja well that is how it is, Shoemagger didn't start his driving career with a F1 Racer, I always buy the best I can afford, and if it is a 100 buck rod than so be it, I'd rather be fishing with that than not fishing because I do not have a rod !

    Ja Boet , know what you mean...

    I still have my first fly rod, a shakespear with softfoam handgrip and who knows what weight. I have since upgraded my tackle again and again and again,,,

    I still have that rod and will always keep it. Good to know where you are comming from - it helps you work out where you need to be going.

    Its all part of the obsession.
