For sale here is a Mario Wojnicki six-sided, hollow-built bamboo rod -- 8'6" 2/2 for a 5-6wt line. Serial no. 628-20. The rod is in excellent condition with a bit of light wear. All sections are full length and straight.
Mario informed me that the "627" in the model number scripted on the rod was simply a mistake. As most of you know, the first three numbers represent the length of Mario's rods in centimeters. This rod is actually the 257F6 model, as confirmed by Mario.
Light flame tempered cane with transparent honey colored wraps. Red tipping at the winding check, male ferrules, and tip-tops. The tips are numbered for convenience. Bright guides. The script remains clean and bold. Western-style grip 6 1/4" in length with moderate soiling. Handsome cap and ring reel seat over a gorgeously figured wood spacer. The Swiss-style ferrules are size 14/64 with a perfect fit. Bluing loss on the cap and ring, one tip ferrule, and the female ferrule. The rod weighs 4.10 oz. Medium-fast dry fly action with a progressive taper. A great rod for far and fine casts on big rivers and lakes. Includes original bag and brown powder coated tube with Wojnicki decal.
