10 – Like New. This rod will be essentially indistinguishable from a new rod. It may have corker that’s a little darker, but it will be no different than a rod that’s on a fly shop floor that people have picked up and cast a few times.
9 – Almost new. This is a rod that’s been out fishing a few times. It will have a darker cork than new and may have some minor imperfections in the blank such as a small number of short, light scratches.
8 – Excellent. This is a great looking rod. Think of this as a rod that’s been used lightly for a season. The cork has started to look worn in, the blank has some scratches on it from the drift boat, rocks, clouser minnows, etc. The scratches in the blank and/or reel seat will be more obvious and frequent. There may be very small cracks in the epoxy, but they would only be something that you would detect if you really went over the rod with a fine tooth comb.
7 – Very Good. A used rod. It’s seen 30+ days on the water. The cork will be worn in at this point and may be rather dark. It could also be missing some small filler. The blank may have scratches that are easily visible and some of the small damage that is deeper than the paint. There may be some minor damage to the epoxy. These rods are still fishable and will have little serious damage to speak of.
6 – Good. A well-used rod. These rods have seen many seasons on the water. The cork will be very worn in and will be rather dark. Expect missing cork filler. The blank may have many scratches and some could be ‘more than skin deep’. Expect some epoxy damage and/or bent guides. These are rods that are in good working order, but are definitely not pretty.
5 and below – We see very few of these rods. They will have major issues and will likely need to be repaired before use. Please read the description carefully.
