PM me. I will give them to you for shipping and a returned shipment of some good beers! I think I have 4 in new condition, because I am not a fan!

You can place an order directly from Sawyer and have one in the mail in about a week. I just ordered one over the phone last week for $20.00 with no problems.

UTMIKE, id certainly take up GC Guide on his offer, it's a great deal. But when you get them realize that you probably don't need the whole 4 lbs. They should be steel rods epoxied into the wood handle. Think about cutting them down. IMO, only a rare few seriously screwed up setups need that much weight. Half or 1/4 as much is more commonly adequate.

I have a pair 9.5' and 10'ers. The 10 have 1.5 lbs and the others 1 lb. In the end it will really depend on your geometry how much you'll need. Oh and I don't run mine truly balanced, I just want most of the weight off my shoulders.
