E.C. Powell 9'6 2/2 #6/7 Hollow-built Bamboo Rod


For sale here is a Maslan-era E.C. Powell 9'6" two-piece semi-hollowbuilt bamboo rod for a 6-7wt. Two sections with four tips. The rod is in excellent condition. The two original tips were short when our consignor purchased the rod so he asked Tony to make two new tips. The original tips are down 3 5/8" and 4 3/8". All sections are straight.

Golden wraps with full intermediates. The winding check wrapped is tipped in cream and black. Red agate stripping guide. Oxidized guides. Snake guide hook-keeper. Classic ECP style grip. Aluminum up-locking reel seat over a bakelite spacer. E.C. Powell logo stamp on the reel seat. The spacer has a shallow scratch directly where the top of the reel foot sits.

The rod weighs 5.45 oz. The ferrules are size 17/64 with a perfect fit. The ferrules feature red witness marks. The rod feels light and very well balanced in the hand considering the length. This is due to the semi-hollow construction. The action is a very smooth medium-fast with plenty of power to lay out a lot of line. Includes a replacement bag from Maslan when he made the two new tips. Original labeled tube with Yuba City address.
