This rod is 8##x2019; long and is rated for 7wt line (will handle a 6wt line as well). It weighs 4 3/8oz##xA0;(butt section: 3.5oz; tip sections: 0.8oz each).
Overall this rod is in great shape and look seldomly used. The cork handle shows moderate soiling and has a number ##x201C;10##x201D; on it. Additionally, there is a light red##xA0;staining on a small##xA0;section of the cork and also near the rod label (can most likely be cleaned off). ##xA0;And finally, one of the tip sections has a slight bend at a rightward angle. Both of the tips and the butt section have matching serial numbers; and based on the serial number, I believe this rod was built in the 1960's.
The guide wrappings are in##xA0;excellent##xA0;shape and look original. The finish on the tip guides does show light wear (see photos). The ferrules fit tight, however could benefit from some fresh wax.
