While browsing a local Cabela's I noticed a rod that was marked down, actually several marked down. But this model caught my eye, especially the bottom line price. I picked it up to check it out a little closer and to get the feel of it. I noticed it was a 2wt, and only 5ft. It was 2 piece and had a cork reel seat. The blank was a nice olive color and the cosmetic stuff seemed OK. The rod is Cabelas TQR, I guess that means tight quarters rod. I'm going to pair it up with a few reels to see what balances, and give it a test today. Another nice feature is the cloth bag and hard tube, along with the mark down price of $76.00.
