rapala xrap rods

found one new in a hock shop for $120, claimed retail $300 when i looked em up. did some searching and found someone who had one and it snapped after a few casts. its been sitting in the rod rack last few weeks so thought ide give it a crack tomorrow so got it out fed line through the eyelets pulled the line on a  very light drag at about 45 degree angle and snap, high modulus graphite...... clean snap 4th eyelet down, seemed like a nice rod, guess it was to good to be true. any thoughts or any1 used or heard of these rods?
