I'm sure someone other than me purchased an Orvis Silver Label rod. I can't remember what they cost new.

Here's why I need to know. I broke mine, and Orvis has now said they can't fix it, and since they don't make them any longer, they want to replace it with another rod.

What ****** me off is that they offered to replace it with a Clearwater Rod. Not what I consider fair, but I can't remember what I paid for it new. I bought it at a Bass Pro Shops about eight years ago and thought I paid about $250, but I just can't remember.

If someone else purchased such a rod and remembers the cost, please post it so I can tell Orvis what I will take as a replacement for the broken one. This may change my opinion of Orvis.
