he broke 4 i think, keyword "he"

my only complaint about the rod is the balance point is a little further forward than i wish it was, but at this price point very hard to beat IMO

i just can't see 320 dollars for a rod, and from what i've seen the QC over there isn't the best. Only way I'd buy another is if I could hand pick it. plus a BIG discount
