Orvis "Equinox" Impregnated 7'6 Bamboo Rod

For sale here is a 7'6 impregnated Orvis "Equinox" 5wt 2/3 bamboo rod. Throws a 5 weight line very well. Serial number 12802 built in April of 1952 by George Reid and Cal Skinner. The rod is in good fishable condition. All sections are straight and full length. The impregnated cane is sound though the rod could benefit from a good polishing. The cigar grip, though soiled, is in good shape with a very small chip at the winding check. Aluminum down-locking reel seat with walnut spacer that has a few wear marks. The rod has a medium-fast dry fly action. There is a third tip that is broken. It appears that a replacement was made by Orvis at some point as all serial numbers match. Written on the butt is  "J.W. Klages" in the same handwriting as the "Orvis-Impregnated" on the opposite flat. The rod weighs 4 1/8 oz. Ferrule size 13/64. Comes with original bag and tube.
