As I have finally sold my five weights and have my last rod a Loomis east fork on the sale site I have added a little money to look at a cane rod and saw and read some on these Steve Pennington cane rods at the 500.00 price range.I also saw some on eBay at 299.95 made in one of the northern states.Anyone have one , remarks on cane rods and upkeep,problems or anything else.
