Well this posting cost me another rod. Now I am up to 13. I went out today and came across a project healing waters from TFO. I am not a TFO fan but I had to buy this one. This rod is absolutely beautiful and I love the fact of the $25 donation that TFO makes. My wife has a breast cancer rod from TFO and it has the same appeal to me for the same reasons. But enough rambling I just wanted everyone to know this post cost me another rod.
