I've been offered a brand new rod for sale that has never been out of the extra carrying case. It is a Lefty Kreh Signature 9'-0" 10 weight. It is a cosmetically perfect item from an estate. While I've been fly fishing for many decades I have never even cast anything over a 6 weight. Would this be a good rod for bass? Would a really old guy, like me, have trouble handling such a heavy rod? And what would be a fair price? Thanks.
