For your consideration is an Impregnated 8 1/2' Water Seal FB rod that needed rewrapping. The gold silk for the FB is unobtanium at any reasonable price, so I wrapped this FB rod in FA wrap colors.Also put a coat of varnish over the Water Seal label to protect it from any further wear. All sections full length but the tip top on one tip has a slight bend to it, but nothing that will effect casting. No dents in the uplocking reel seat, that works perfectly. Ferrule size are 18 & 12. The cork has been cleaned and it doesn't have any ridging.
I also added a signature wrap at 20" only to realize after the fact that it won't be at 20" with a reel on the rod :-\. The ferrule fit is good with popping when separated, but you can tell that the rod has been used - not overly tight, but absolutely not loose.
The tube shows signs of use, but there are no dents. The top to the tube is from another W&M rod tube (I believe the original would have been brass, but then again this tube matches the color of the FA tubes, not the FB). I have not fished this rod, but lawn cast with a WF7 and DT6 and my will it lay out some line with seemingly little effort. Thanks for looking and please feel free to ask questions and check out my other auctions.
