Academy Sports in Tallahassee has 12' H2O Express surf rods on clearance for 19.97, usually 49.99. They weren't marked clearance. But after buying three of them, I asked if it was a price mistake or what. The guy said they must be on clearance. It still lists them as 49.99 on the website, so this might be just the one store. They still have at least a dozen in store. Hopefully all stores are the same. Good luck.
