EC Powell Fly Rod 9' 2/1 #5/6


An EC Powell semi-hollow fly rod, 9', 2-piece, 1-tip, built for what feels to me like a 5 or 6 line. Weighs 4.6 ounces on my scale. Patent number lettered on the shaft. 2-opposed node construction and honey colored cane. The rod has had some work done on it to deal with delamination evidenced by a lengthy clear wrap which runs just above the grip up to the stripping guide, as well as several smaller clear wraps above the stripper. Similarly the tip section has a 12" clear wrap on the lower portion and a reinforcement bamboo strip near the top that has been clear wrapped. The upper most guide on the butt section is also missing, and the tip is a half inch shorter than the butt section. Some of the wraps used for the replacement work are slightly lighter than the original Powell brown. The ferrules are bright. The grip has some modest ridging and is done in the standard Powell profile. The black bakelite seat has a vertical crack running along its length. Aluminum hardware with the Powell stamp. Medium full-flexing action. Comes in a brown bag and aluminum tube with brass top and bottom. With a guide replacement on the butt this should be a serviceable fisher.

Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.

Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop).
