St Croix sells a couple 10' 6" noodle rods. They have one in their Avid series for $230 retail or a couple in their Wild River series for $150. You can go online to www.stcroixrods.com
and buy them if your local store doesn't have them. I could custom build one on a St Croix blank for a little bit more, say $250 and $175 with basic guide, reel seat, etc. No fancy wraps, just a tool. Send me a PM if your friend is interested in the custom build. Probably about a 3-4 week turnaround.
