I believe the spinning rod is no longer available. If anyone has any left, it will likely be the Eagle Claw factory store. When I checked a couple weeks ago, they had a few baitcast models left, but I didn't ask about the spinning model.

Problem solved - Made one from a broom stick and a couple of eye screws.
I think the hook set will be fine but my fishing buddies will say they don't know me. " He's just some drunk we picked up on the way up here"

From what I heard, they sold very well in Colorado, but not nationally. That's too bad. I thought they were a great product, especially considering the ptice. I landed several fish over 20 lbs on mine last winter and never felt undergunned, yet the rod was lightweight and sensitive enough to feel what your bait was doing way down there.

I guess lake trout rods are a niche market.....
