Sold Out $6,000.00 US
For sale here is a very scarce Hoagy Carmichael Jr. Model 212 bamboo rod -- 8'6 2/2 for a DT5 line. This is one of six Model 212's ever made by Mr. Carmichael. The rod has seen little use. Excellent ++ condition. Progressive medium fast action. Nickel silver pocketed cap and ring reel seat over a walnut spacer. All sections are straight and full-length with no prior repairs and none needed. The varnish remains in amazing condition. The tip top guides were a custom request from the original buyer and Hoagy has confirmed this is the only rod made with these tip tops. Original bag and ferrule plug. A replacement tube accompanies the rod. The rod weighs 4 1/2 oz. and the ferrules are size 14/64 with an excellent fit. Mr. Carmichael only made 103 rods in his rod-building career and this one ranks up there with his finest!
