Default Huge set of Connley Platinum Series Rods

HUGE set of Connley rods for sale, in Bluffton SC if you’d like to see them in person. Will ship.

These are Connley Fishing’s “Platinum Series” custom rods. They all feature Connley’s signature two-tone blue wrap that is just gorgeous. I’m ordering some new custom rods with different colors and specs and that’s the only reason I’m selling. These have a lifetime of caching fish ahead of them.

These rods are all between 2 and 3 years old. When they are fresh from the shop the colors are a very “blue blue”, but with some UV exposure they acquire a slight teal hue. Doing digital art and design for years I am pretty tuned in to notice these things, but it’s typical with thread colors under epoxy (and Connley uses the best). So while these are used, they are not abused and are in great shape overall. I’m a stickler for always rinsing with freshwater after use.

All of these have Fuji SiC guides except for one unique rod which has black Fuji SiN guides, and there are some trolling rods with the Winthrop XATS Roller tips.

Grips are all covered with X-Grip, and many of them are customized with Connley’s own “finger-notches”. Rods have silver Alps aluminum reel seats, except for the 2-piece rods which have full aluminum butts. I do have some silver Winthrop Terminator adjustable butts as an *option* on the 2-piece rods, otherwise they include the #2 Alps straight butts.

I’m pricing these aggressively and firm, but I would entertain offers for very large purchases. This is not a fire sale.
Feel free to come inspect/purchase these rods in person (Bluffton SC). I’d love to not have to ship anything if possible.
All prices are listed as “plus actual shipping” for any purchase. Last time I shipped rods, even a single one, it was minimum ~$40. If I over-quote shipping I will refund the difference.

I’m glad to converse regarding the action/best uses/reel matches/etc for any of these, but I’m going to start simple and list the rods and prices, and some links to the same or similar rods as they appear on Connley’s website if I can find them:

(Updated list moved down thread with current availability, several sold already)

    Fantastic action and a perfect trolling set to run 30s/50s. Selling for $330 each as pictured with #2 silver Alps straight butts. I also have a few Winthrop Terminator butts available as an option ($625 ea).

These are representative of the appearance and condition of the entire set. It will take me probably through tomorrow to get the rest of the rods photographed and online, but that’s a start.
