Hiram Hawes Featherweight Rod
As for the rod itself it sports lovely pot-belly style ferrules and hand-turned cap and ring hardware. Naturally, it has the classic Hawes-style grip which tapers larger toward the front. The slide band sits on a white cedar spacer. The butt cap is stamped “H Hawes & Co Makers, Abercrombie & Fitch Co, Sole Agents, New York, U.S.A. A521″. Wrapped in a very light tan color (almost clear) with dark brown at ferrules. Stainless guides, brass-topped tip tube and canvass outer bag.
