Tufts and Batson Bamboo Rod 8' 3/2 5wt - new!

Here is the latest from the team of Amelia Tufts and Gabe Batson, an 8' 3/2 5wt bamboo rod. New condition. Amelia and Gabe are cranking out some seriously stunning fly rods. The casting ability of the rods and attention to detail that they put into each rod is tremendous! This latest creation has a beautiful red agate stripper, oxidized guides, bright nickel-silver hardware, and a downlocking reel seat over a stunning Holly wood spacer that resembles ivory! The three-tier nickel silver winding check adds a wonderful artistic touch to the rod. Medium dry-fly action. The rod effortlessly loads a DT5. Feels balanced, light and controlled with plenty of reserve power. Semi-transparent silk wraps tipped with amber. Subtly shaped cigar grip. Polished nickel-silver ferrule plugs. Cotton poplin bag with hang tag, mill-finished aluminum tube. The rod weighs 4 1/2 oz. and the ferrules are size 16/64 and 10/64. The tip tops are 0.0775", or 5/64. Don't let this one get away!
