Goodwin Granger Favorite Model 7633

For sale here is a Goodwin Granger Favorite Model 7633 - 7'6 3/2 for a 5 weight line. Excellent condition with a soiled coke bottle grip. The varnish is in excellent shape. All sections are straight and full length. The rod weighs 3 3/4 oz. Size 15/10 ferrules and the fit is nice and tight. Fixed cap and slide band reel seat. Comes with original bag and tube with remnant of the original GG label.

The rod has a Goodwin Granger Champion model reel seat with no stamping between the dual knurling. Some of the ferrules appear to be Wright & McGill ferrules and the stamp "Granger Favorite" is clearly a later stamp from the Wright & McGill era. The wrap pattern is also from the Wright & McGill era. The coke bottle grip remains a mystery since these were only used on the Goodwin Granger rods. The rod quite possibly could have been pieced together over the years, but it's definitely a Model 7633. It's possible the rod could be a WMG rod with a replaced reel seat and grip from the GG era.
