Young, Paul H. -- Para 18 Bamboo Rod

For sale here is a Paul H. Young Parabolic 18 bamboo rod, complete with original bag and tube. The rod is in excellent+ restored condition. Bob Summers did the restoration and re-wrote the script with a gold pen to preserve the original Paul Young gold penmanship. The restoration included re-wrapping the guides and a new coat of varnish. No other repairs were made. The rod is full length with no invisible wraps. All sections are straight. Rod was originally built in 1951. Rod shows very little use post-restoration. Ferrule fit is perfect (step-down ferrules). This 9 footer is a very strong rod for 8-10 weight lines. Original cork grip is in fine shape. Comes with original fighting butt. I'll let the pictures supply the rest of the description. No issues to disclose other than the rod bag has been taped on the bottom since there are a few rips.
