12ft 6in Breakaway LDFS123-2H built on an All-Star BGSW 1477-2 Blank (2-5oz) that I rebuilt as a Spinning NGC rod using Fuji BMN0G Guides, Japanese Shrink Wrap handle and Plate type Reel Seat - Pictures below - $250.00 Firm plus shipping or we can meet in Ocean or Monmouth Counties in NJ.

Length is typo in my OP - picture of rod where I hand lettered the specs from the original Breakaway decal says 12ft 3inch. I appreciate your offer of a trade, however, I have an abundance of fishing tackle both Fly, light, medium and heavy surf/bay. Since my lumbar and cervical spine damage is progressing, I have a need to get rid of the heavy stuff and acquire cash to help with mine and my wife's medical bills that are not covered by insurance. I will, however, consider a reasonable cash offer.

 

Thanks for looking.

Does it like lighter weights or lean towards the heavy end?

i like all stars/breakaways but my offer on this rod might be considered too low so ill wait and watch post

I, had no problem throwing 2oz aerodynamic lures up to 5oz and a Clam tongue. It will put the latter and a 4oz Plugcaster Pencil over the outer bar with an overhead thump, standing on dry sand - it was my favorite rod for working big pencils, but my right hand nerve damage doesn't allow me to work those plugs anymore.

 

If it helps, I can go down to $200.00 cash with us meeting up somewhere from IBSP south.

That's a nice rod. FlatWing builds really top notch rods. I have a heaver he made. Im having health problem also or I would be all over it. If  someone doesnt grabs it soon, we will have to talk and make that meet at the Outlets. Hope You are feeling better.

Bucket:

 

Are wanting to meet up during the week or on weekends?  If on a weekday I need advance notice as I usually have 1-3 Medical  appointments, plus my wife's (cancer related) medical appointments.  In the meantime, I am attaching the All-Star blank specification chart from the era (pre 2004) when I was buying the ones that I have or have since sold.
