I have a G. Loomis P844 GL2 custom rod for sale.

Built with Fuji chrome alconite guides (CYAG), Fuji delux "Soft Touch" reel seat, and X-flocked shrink wrap grip.

Black and gold wraps built by Jim from Hatteras Jack. It's it great condition, less than a year old.

The middle of the reel seat is 13" from the butt. Cork wrap above the seat.

This is "the" trout rod on the Outer Banks. It throws a Mirrolure like nothing else.

$125 plus shipping.

SPECIFICATIONS:

Model: P844 GL2 POPPING ROD BLANK

Technique: Popping

Color: Granite

Length: 7'

Pieces: 1

Line Weight: 8-14

Lure Weight: 1/4-5/8

Tip Diameter: 5.50

Butt Diameter: 0.494

Action: Fast

Power: Medium

I'm taking a beating at that price, but I need the cash. :rolleyes:

I'll ship it in a PVC tube to your door for $10.

It'll bomb 3/8oz, but I can't be sure about 1/4oz.

I've never tossed lower than 3/8oz with it, sorry.

I found this on Clyde's website:

http://www.clydescustomrods.com/inshore.html

SPEC / PUP ROD

- G. LOOMIS P 843-GL2 (7'0")

- G. LOOMIS P 844-GL2 (7'0")

- These rods are an absolute pleasure to fish with. They are all 7' long, with slightly varying
powers. The P843 is great for tossing 1/4 oz grubs to speckled trout. The P844 won't toss
the 1/4 oz jigs as well, but it still does a nice job and it handles the mirror lures a little better.
It will also handle the larger pups and stripers that you sometimes encounter while spec
fishing. I build these with fuji alconites, but SIC guides are available for a small price
increase.

AD, I'll give Smoothlures until tomorrow afternoon to reply.

I'll go ahead and put the rod in a PVC pipe and pack it with newspaper tonight. That way I can ship it out Friday on the way to work. I don't mind paying for shipping.

Dog, I didn't know you wanted the rod or I would have called you before I put it up here on the Marketplace.
