Winston Bamboo Rod 9' 6-7wt 2/2 - San Francisco

For sale here is a Doug Merrick / San Francisco era RL Winston bamboo rod - 9 feet, 2/2 for a 6-7 weight line. Serial no. 6279. 4 1/2 oz actual weight. Very good condition overall with signs of use including some minor chips and scratches in the varnish on the butt section, although nothing requiring repair in my opinion. The butt section and first tip are full length. The second tip is 2 1/2 inches short and has a 1 1/4" repair wrap over a splinter just above the fourth guide. Down-locking bakelite reel seat in fine shape. All three guides on the butt section are stripping guides as well as the first guide on each tip. Original bag and tube. Tube cap has seen better days, but attaches sufficiently. Excellent ferrule fit (size 14).
