I have a LL Bean SPT 12 weight, 3 piece, 9 foot rod that I purchased new when LL Bean discontinued the rods. This was thier top of the line rod and retailed for around $500. My understanding is that they discontinued them when they started selling Sage and Loomis high end rods so they would not be competing against them. This rod has not been out of the house since I purchased it. Just took it out and admired it a few times. I would like to sell the rod for around $250.00. If you do not think it is worth that make me an offer. I plan to buy a 9 or 10 wt rod with what I get from selling this rod and another 2 piece rod that I have already sold. I am selling them because most of my fishing involves travel and I use only 4 piece rods.
