Baginski, Rolf - "Horizon" Bamboo Rod 7' 2/2 5wt

For sale here is a very nice bamboo rod made by Rolf Baginski of Germany - an early version of his "Horizon" model - 7' 2/2 made for a five weight line. Fast action. Mr. Baginski describes this model as follows....."Whether dry-fly, wet-fly or nymph, whether close or distant, with this rod you are well equipped for all possibilities. Despite the fast action, the sensitive tip allows the use of fine leader-tips." Richly flamed cane above the winding check, blonde cane elsewhere. Serial #190. Tapered cigar grip. Reel seat cap and ring is german silver over a very striking wood spacer and a felt bottom on the cap, presumably to keep from scuffing it while resting the rod streamside. The guide wraps are maroon or deep red. The ferrules are size 14/64 and the ferrule fit is tight. The rod is in near mint condition and complete with original bag and tube. No sets. The rod weighs 3 7/8 oz.
