For sale here is a gorgeous bamboo rod in excellent condition built by the late Gary Howells - 7 feet for a 5 weight, weighing 2 5/8 oz in a 2/2 format. Skeleton cork seat, half wells grip, blued guides, original bag and tube, but sticker on the tube has come off over time in pieces, so I taped it back together. Some of the bluing on the stripping guide has worn off. No issues with the cane. Ferrule fit is perfect with both tips. No sets, all sections are straight and full length. All silk wraps are still very solid - no fraying, cracking, etc. Grip is slightly ridged. If you have any other questions, please let me know.
