For sale here is a Maxwell-era H.L. Leonard Duracane bamboo rod - 7'6" 2/2 for a five weight line. The rod is in excellent original condition. All sections are full length and without repair. Both tips have very slight sets from use.

The distinct Tom Maxwell script remains clean and bold. Ring hook keeper. Petite cigar grip 5" in length with moderate soiling. The cork is void of any ridging or other defects.
