i bought it used and have used it a lot.

it has worked like a charm.

i didn't miss it...i replied 5 minutes later.

nothing is outright wrong with reel,it is just a well used reel.

i can't give it a 10 cause it's not new and i wouldn't give it a 9.5 cause it's not cherry.

so 9 seemed logical.

i used it all last season and if it doesn't sell,i'll use it this season.

it's just that i'm going heavy into conventionals this year so it won't see much use.

it is a cts blank rated 3-5 oz.

it is 13'6" with a 50/50 split

it has 7 guides plus the tip

it is 31" from butt to reel seat

yes it is the orange blank with orange wraps on guides and reel seat.

there is no covering on butt.there are a few light scratches on butt from rod holder.i like the all orange look but it would be easy to put cork tape or shrink wrap on butt from reel seat to butt cap.

it was made by r h custom rods(heaver on this site)

it throws 3-5 with a sweet spot of 4oz.

lots of back bone yet the tip is very sensitive.
