For sale here is a rarely seen Per Brandin hollowbuilt six-strip (hex) bamboo rod -- 8'9" 2/2 for a WF7 line. Model 897-2 S/S "Mahogany" built in 2013. The rod remains in mint condition with the exception of a very small mark in the wood spacer on the reel seat.
From Per's website, "When I know I will be fishing dry flies or hitched wets, I love to fish a lighter #7 line. It is perfect as a grilse rod when you also have a good chance of hooking a larger salmon, or of course as a light steelhead dry fly rod."
The rod features beautiful mahogany-toned cane with a matte finish; matching wraps with oxblood tipping at the winding check, signature wrap, ferrules, and tip-tops. Agate stripping guide. Full-wells grip measuring 6 1/2" in length. Cap and ring reel seat with a handsome extended butt cap (F.E. Thomas Streamer style!) that accepts the included 3 1/4" fighting butt. The truncated Swiss-style ferrules have a perfect fit. Micarta ferrule plug. The rod weighs in at 4.71 oz. without the fighting butt and 6.05 oz. with. Includes the original bag with a sleeve for the fighting butt, the original labeled tube, and fine canvas tube cover.
