I am not the seller, I just found it browsing. Thought this was unique, to say the least. Not for me but someone here might enjoy having it.   Ebay link

I see this more as a wall hanger by the basement bar. You can make up some crazy story to your drinking buddies about fishing in texas landing your first dd bass and this rattler came up and latched on your leg. Poisoned and all you still landed the beast but failed to get any pics for proof because of the snake. You know us fisherman, Full of stories. And of course they're all true...

I couldn't see it even being possible to fish with that rod? It would have to be extremely uncomfortable to hold for very long, and how tough would that rattlesnake head be? I love St.Croixs but I'll pass on that one.

As a custom rod builder my opinion is.

While not really comfortably fishable, it could be fished.

The seller/builder has imo a lot of hours in this rod.

In the custom rod world this rod would/could be included in a lot of collections.

A lot of the replies here don't take into consideration that this is a collector rod,

not your everyday under a 100$ rack rod...... :Victory:
