I purchased a 706z on ebay and it came with a rod. There are no markings on the rod but the guys at Broxson's think it may be a G Loomis but aren't 100%. Is there any way to tell what kind of blank I have?

See what the guys at Broxson's think it is.........then GBBT... Jeremy or Victor might know....I'm more in the pre graphite age...I have a good Idea on those blanks but the graphites basically look the same to me,just different actions....

if there's no label on the rod, it is rpetty much hard to i.d. them.
most blanks have some sort of i.d. inside the blank at the butt, some have it outside, at the butt end too.
another way is to measure the butt diameter and tip diamter and compare it to the g.loomis blanks.

other than that, it is pretty much a guess work. you'll be going by what someone told you.

I plan on selling this setup soon as I'm moving out of state. What do you think a good asking price is, just for the rod itself?

If it's a RCJB blank then it would have cost about $150 in material plus labor to build. ($100). So think of it as $250 new. Condition is everything. I typically see guys selling used custom graphite rods in the $100-$150 range, but like I said it all depends on condition.
