Great fly rod to add to your collection. Cosmetic condition shows wear on the outer clear coating down the rod, looks like it was put inside the cloth cover while damp and when you take the rod out of the cloth it stuck to the cloth. Looks to have been in storage most of it's life. The rod has a sticky feel to it from the clear coat on it, might have to put a differnt clear coat of some kind on it to make it less sticky. The tube case has wear from storage.Check out my other items. The item "Vintage Heddon Bamboo Fly Rod Fishing #14 9', Fer. 5.8 oz" is in sale since Thursday, March 09, 2017.
