This rod is in great used shape and it is ready to hit the water. The cork handle only shows light wear and the blank is free of any deep scratch markings (it has a few light surface blemishes).
Also, there is some minor wear near the hook keeper. The spigot ferrules fit tight with room for future wear. Please note, this rod is supposed to measure 9' 5"; however, it measures in at 9' 7".It is possible that the extra 2 are coming from the gaps in the ferrules. This rod is rated for a 7wt line and it has a nice action. The tube and sock are included. Unfortunately, the strap on the tube ripped off (you should be able to have it repaired). Also, the rod sock only has room for 6-spots, but this rod is an 8-piece. ######xA0;Overall, a nice high-quality travel rod. ######xA0;Please see all of the photos and thank you for looking. ######xA0; ####x2022; It is important to me that the item you receive is the item you were expecting.
