I restored this rod & now it's in great condition. All the bamboo is original along with the reel seat, grip, winding check, ferrules, & tip top. I've re-varnished the rod & given it all new line guides & wraps.
This rod suffered from a problem that many vintage production rods have: not enough line guides in the proper size &/or in the correct places. So while restoring the rod, I made sure to correct that problem. Now this rod will cast a line as it should & better than it ever did.
Many collectors of production rods want to see the decals on the rod. This one has its decals in surprisingly good condition. Normally, the acetate decals are all but gone on a rod this old. Fortunately the labels are in okay shape with only a few small pieces missing. That's good since this rod has the desirable 'trout & diamond' decal. Also, the white script writing of the model name is all there, too.
Either way, this rod is now a better casting & better looking vintage rod that should serve you well. Please go to the "Available" page or email me to learn more about this old rod with a new life.
