Harada Rod 7' 2/1 3wt Hollowbuilt

For sale here is a hollow-built bamboo rod handcrafted in Japan by Katsumi Harada - 7 feet, two sections, one tip, for a 3 weight line. The rod is constructed from madake cane, creating a light and medium progressive action, aided by his use of a carbon and bamboo spigot ferrule system, allowing the rod taper to flex consistently through the ferrule sections. Harada-san points out that madake cane has very fine fibers, resulting in a slower action, yet not weak. The fine fibers also result in blanks with a very smooth and beautiful surface. Beautiful karin wood spacer. Translucent silk wraps are tipped gold. The rod weighs 2.75 oz. Three-up node pattern. The spar urethane varnish is very nicely done. Comes with custom rod bag.
