Brandin, Per - Model 764-2 DF Special

For sale here is a hollow-built Per Brandin Model 764-2 DF Special -- 7'6" 4wt hex bamboo rod with staggered ferrule construction with a 16" ferrule plug. Made in 2016. The rod remains in near mint condition. One of the three tips is a replacement as one of the original tips had a narrow split in the cane. Brandin repaired the original tip and also made a third one. The repaired tip includes a very thin invisible wrap running from guide to guide.

Beautiful dark cane with caramel colored wraps. Agate stripping guide. Modified full-wells grip 5 1/2" in length with only the slightest handling marks. Blued nickel silver cap and ring reel seat over a beautifully figured mortised mahogany spacer. The ferrules are size 14/64 with a perfect fit. The rod weighs a svelte 2.75 oz. The rod has a terrific medium-fast dry fly action. The repaired and replacement tips have identical actions though the repaired tip might feel just a tad stiffer. Includes original bag and tube with brass fittings and heavy canvas tube cover. Brandin had a new bag made to accommodate the third tip section and also features a sleeve for the ferrule plug. A correspondence letter from Per Brandin is also included detailing the repair.
