Reams, James - 8'6 3/2 5-6wt Hollowbuilt Bamboo Rod

For sale here is a Jim Reams 8'6" 3/2 hollowbuilt bamboo rod for a five or six weight line. Serial no. 64. The rod is in excellent+ condition. All sections are full length and straight. There are some very fine use marks on the varnish. Transparent red wraps. Black tipping at the winding check, ferrules, and tip-tops. There are three red intermediates finely wrapped between the stripping guide and the grip. Blued guides and ferrules with witness marks on the ferrules. The tips are numbered for convenience. Gradually swelled butt. Full wells grip is lightly soiled but in excellent overall condition. Bright aluminum up-locking reel seat. Fine wood spacer. The rod features Swiss-style truncated ferrules with a perfect fit. The rod weighs 4 3/4 oz. The taper is progressive and the action is medium-fast. The rod sits squarely between a 5 and 6 wt in my hands and could handle either line well. A wonderful western trout rod (and a very nice selection for the West Branch of the Delaware!) Includes original bag and tube with label and brass fittings.
