Unbelievably rare 51xxx serial, IM6 8 #4/5 Graphite in NEW, plastic still on grip condition. This rod is NEW from a time warp. Rod features Nickle Silver down lock seat over very nice Zebra wood(Cocobolo).
All is mint, never fished, never used, sparkles as photos indicate. I have cast many, many, Winstons including the the TMF 8 #4, another one of these, the 8 1/2 #5, 9 #5, 9 #4 and the 8 #3 IM6 rods. Pick it up, lay down the cast and it is pure silkyness. Cork is dense, super quality, with no filler(hard to find cork like this now).
Zebra seat is rich looking, and has super grain. Wraps are smooth and flat.... Spectacular work from the best period of Winston!I visited the old Twin Bridges shop several times during this period, and the attention to detail by the folks there was outstanding! The ultimate small to mid size stream Dry fly rod or small nymph rod. Would be a delight to cast to big trout during a hatch...
6x, 7x is no problem with the fine tip. Tube, sock are all factory fresh in time warp condition as photos indicate. You may spend a lifetime and never see/cast another Winston Graphite as nice as this.
