This rod was sold in 1987. It is a fast action rod, and drives a sharp profiled loop with a DT-8. In fact, I think it could fish well with a DT-9. It is made for steelhead, salmon, and other big water fish. All sections straight and full length. Grip is moderately soiled. Leon Hanson announced on his web site in 2017 that he is no longer accepting new rod orders, only filling out existing orders. His rods are in very short supply, and are being sold in the $3000-$4000 range for his latest rods. Very Good-Near Fine. $1150
