  1. If you are unable to find your exact rod, I have a 10' Tiralejo purchased here in 2010 which may provide the next closest thing to the model you seek. $180 shipped. Good luck in your search.
  2. My photography skills may be lacking, especially photographing a rod, but the tip has not been shortened.
  3. 11'6" cts 1-3 spinner 4 double foot and 4 single foot guides flocked shrink wrap 24" to center of fuji reel seat cobalt blue blank....orange wraps like new $260 shipped p/p Was purchased here -- original seller may have more info or pictures.
  4. I will take it.
  5. Is the bag still available. If so I will take it.
  6. Spin or conventional?
  7. I will soon - but the rod has been in storage since received and never used.
  8. Almost what you want . . . 11'6" cts 1-3 spinner 4 double foot and 4 single foot guides flocked shrink wrap 24" to center of fuji reel seat cobalt blue blank....orange wraps like new $260 shipped p/p Was purchased here -- original seller may have more info or pictures.
  9. I have no dog in this fight since I responded to a WTB thread, sold the reel, got paid (no more than I paid for it here), and have no further say in what the new owner does with that reel. I will say that messaging me after the fact that I underpriced the reel [sending the message after the deal is struck] or that the buyer might profit somehow [after it is no longer my reel anyway] assumes that I will be unhappy at the good fortune of others who are luckier or more skillful at negotiation than I am. I assure you that I am not harmed by or resentful of the success of others. If you watch Antiques Roadshow on PBS, we all cheer for the person who paid $20 at a yard sale for a table which turns out to be a rare Federal period antique worth a quarter million. No one sees that show as an opportunity to mock the yard sale operator who just wanted the junk in the garage gone and was happy to unload it for $20.
  10. Are you seeking spinning or conventional?
  11. Here's for you, vets: my wife works in D.C. and on Tuesday got to lay flowers in Arlington at the Tomb of the Unknown. This was for her dad, Navy (Pacific Theatre), and mine, Army (European Theatre), and for all of you.
  12. Indeed it might be, but I would not know how to do that or I would have. Good luck to whoever can. I would suggest that you communicate with 631dean, the owner, before that person goes fishing with it, LOL.
  13. You see what I paid for it which I would love to recover. That price would include shipping, Pay Pal fees, and insurance.
  14. I bought this a dozen years ago and just realized it has never been used. I would part with it. [The purchase thread linked above, in addition to everything I know about reel, had a humorous discussion of if this was a "left-handed reel", but as my picture shows it is quite normal.]
