WTB-long bent butt

 I have an older model Daiwa Dendoh deep drop rod ( one with the orange blank), and it has a short butt. This is a PITA as you need to use a gimbal extender, and it's never in the right holder, etc. Does anyone have a long bent butt of the same type they want to be rid of? I'll buy a complete older one on a rod if the price is OK.

The butt disconnects from the rod?

Can you not get a long butt from Paciffic bay/rod builder perhaps?

 If you are not fussed about the rod not locking into the rod holder try putting a golf ball down the rod holder.  Attach it to a short piece if line so it can be removed easily.

 Sure, I can buy a new butt, Bluewater Exmouth said they always have them there, and be prepared to pay near the same amount as a whole new rod.   I guess if I buy a new bent butt, I can exchange it between the excellent Calstar -blanked  24kg outfit I have, with straight butt, and the deep dropper.
