Wagner, JD -- Signature Series Bamboo Rod 8' 5wt 3/2

For sale here is a Signature Series bamboo rod from JD (Jeff) Wagner. 8 feet 3/2 for a 5 weight line. This is the 7th rod Jeff built in 1998 according to the 1198-7 serial number on the butt section. The flaming on this rod is one of the most striking examples I've ever seen. The rod is very richly flamed everywhere except around the "golden nodes". When combined with the three-up node spacing, this makes for quite the visual effect (see photos!) The rod also comes with the highest quality Super-Z style nickel silver ferrules, a top-grade nickel silver screw uplocking reel seat, black ceramic stripping guide, an exclusive ropebraid sterling silver hook keeper, translucent silk wraps with black tipping and immaculately dipped spar varnish finish. Finally, the rod comes in a hexagonal walnut rod tube and original Wagner bag. The rod weighs 5.45 oz, the ferrules are size 13 and 19. Overall condition is excellent. There is some minor "frosting" under many of the wraps, which is purely cosmetic. All guides are securely attached.
