Leonard, H.L. -- Deluxe Model 755 7'6 2/2 5wt

For sale here is a scarce H.L. Leonard Deluxe Model 755 -- 7'6" 2/2 5wt bamboo rod. Serial no. 4684. This line of rods was only produced in 1984. The rod remains in excellent original condition (with the exception that one of the tip top loops is cracked). Other than that, minor signs of use exist. All sections are full length and straight.

An acrylic finish devised by Walt Carpenter gives a truly lustrous straw colored surface; lemon yellow silks tipped hunter green is a nice departure from their more standard designs. Blued guides. Carboloy stripping guide. Ring hook-keeper. The script remains bold and clear. Mildly swelled butt. Elegant nickel silver cap and ring reel seat with the traditional butternut spacer. Leonard stamp on the butt cap. Ferrule size 13/64 with a terrific fit. The rod weighs 3.45 oz. Leonard described the rod in their catalog as offering "a crisp medium action pleasing to most anglers". Includes original bag and Maxwell-type tube with Leonard logo die stamp.

It is quite rare to see a rod from this series come up for sale. Don't miss out!
