For sale here is an impregnated J.S. Sharpe The "Aberdeen" 13' 3/1 9wt bamboo rod. Serial no. 4-7-90. Excellent original condition though there is a small ding in the mid section and light overall wear. All sections are full length with a minor set in the tip. The tip was made 1 1/8" shorter than the butt and mid.
Moderately tempered cane with burgundy wraps. Copper or brass wire wraps at the ferrules with burgundy tipping. The decals and script remain clean with the exception of the "F" decal on the butt. The two-handed grip is a total of 23" from the winding check to the bottom of the fighting butt. The cork shows only the light soiling and is quite smooth. Oddly, it appears the cap from the reel seat was moved at one point. This left 6 small holes and a light indentation from where it was. It is now back in the correct place. The ring is brass while the cap is aluminum. The hard rubber fighting butt is free of any cracks or chips. "J.S. Sharpe Ltd Aberdeen" is stamped into the fighting butt check. The oxidized brass ferrules are size 21/64 and 29/64 with a great fit. Red witness marks as well as "33" stamped into each ferrule. The rod weighs 17.80 oz. Includes original bag with label.
