WTS Custom FSC 1087 9'0 3/4-4oz

11 posts in this topic

Selling my custom FSC 1087 Predator

Located in Boston, willing to travel as far as Providence for meetup. 

 

Build cost was $620 (the guides were very expensive)

Asking $385. Cash or PayPal works.

 

Unfortunately because this is a 1 piece rod at 9 feet, shipping is not an option.

 

-Built by Eric at CMS in New Bedford, MA.

-Fuji K Titanium Single Foot guides with Torzite rings. 

-Layout is NGC for a VS150. 

-Buttgrip is shrink tube with paco style grip on the last 4 inches. 

-19 inches to center of reel seat. 

-Reel seat is Fuji NPS.

-Foregrip is Paco style shrink tube

-There is also shrink tube that extends from the top of the decorative wrap until about 3/4 of the way to the first guide. This is to protect the rod from rock rash and also gives a better gripping surface while pencil popping.

 

Rod was used for a full season and has some very minor rock rash just before the first guide and has some cracking in the epoxy on the bottom half of the rod. Rod is very parabolic so cracking in the epoxy is inevitable. See pics for details.

 

Also a groove in the bottom of the reel seat screw. Sand got inside the threads keeping me from being able to unscrew the reel so I needed to use a pair of pliers to get it free. Still works just fine and I havent had any issue with it since then. I put a drop or two of WD-40 in every few trips to keep it easy to unscrew.

If you'd reconsider shipping I'd take it. I've had luck convincing ups and usps to mark it down a inch shorter so it could be shipped ground instead of freight so 25-35$

Unfortunately I've tried that before at all my local shipping centers with no such luck

Still interested? I might be able to ship. Let me know what zip code so I can get an exact price.

$37.46 is the cheapest shipping available. So how about $310 shipped? It'll be in a pvc tube so it will definitely make it there unharmed

Any chance you could weigh the rod too? If I didn't just buy a new legend this would be a easy no brainier
