Leonard, H.L. -- Model 4099 Tournament Bamboo Rod

For sale here is a pre-fire H.L. Leonard Model 4099 Tournament bamboo rod - 8' 3/2 for a DT5 line. Listed and actual weight of 4 1/2 oz. The rod is in excellent and mostly original condition. The stripping guide and ferrule/guide on the butt have both been re-wrapped as well as the entire mid section. The replacement wraps are remarkably close to the originals. All sections are full length and straight. Very nice medium fast action, quicker than the very popular 50DF models. The ferrules are 10/64 and 17/64 with an excellent tight fit. Reverse twist snake guides. Generously swelled butt. The cigar grip, 5 3/4" in length has been cleaned and is very slightly ridged. Nickel silver cap and ring reel seat over a cork spacer. The seat remains in excellent condition void of any major scratches or dents. The original silks show their age but all guides remain firmly attached. Original nickel silver ferrule plugs are included as well as the original bag with wonderfully preserved hang tag with William Mills markings. The rod tube has Leonard patent markings but I am not certain whether or not it is original.
