For sale here is a Marty Karstetter hollow-built bamboo rod - 8' 3/2 for a 5 weight line. 3 3/4 oz. Serial no. 16911. The rod is in excellent condition. All sections are full length and straight. Marty makes some of the finest casting rods on the planet currently and we've always sold them immediately due to their popularity. We rarely see them on the secondary market because their owners admire them so much! This rod was made in 2011. Moderately tempered cane, varnished, agate stripping guide. Powell-style Wells grip with light soiling, void of any defect. Oxidized cap and ring reel seat over a beautifully figured wood spacer, there is a bit of wear to the bluing around the bottom rim of the butt cap. Oxidized swiss-syle truncated ferrules size 11/64 and 17/64, the fit is perfect. There is light wear to the bluing on the mid-section female ferrule. Swift and powerful medium-fast action also capable of delicate casts and great tippet protection thanks to the thin tips. Includes original bag and tube with brass fittings. You will not be disappointed!
