Thomas and Thomas "Sans Noeud" Limited Edition Bamboo Rod

For sale here is a very limited edition Thomas and Thomas San Noeud bamboo rod in like new condition. Nodeless construction. 7'6 for a DT5 line. Simply amazing work -- 120 hours went into building each of these rods! There were only 20 of these made in 1981. This one is #9 as etched into the base of the reel seat hardware. I will also include an original Thomas and Thomas catalog from 1982 that features this limited edition rod in detail (scans are included in the photos). The rod also comes with the original bag and tube.
