For sale here is a very unique bamboo rod by the Thomas Rod Co. from the early 1930's - 8' 3/2 5wt "Special". What makes this rod unique is the markings on the rod. The rod itself is typical FE Thomas full-flexing medium action, one wet tip and one dry tip. I would rate the condition of the rod as excellent. The rod has been restored at some point in its lifetime. The male ferrules are not FE Thomas ferrules and the wraps have some inconsistencies as well from Thomas rods of this time period. All sections are full-length and there are no invisible wraps. There are some glue lines present, especially on one of the tips. Comes with original bag and tube. The bag shown is not original but protects the rod better than the original bag, which will also be included with this sale.

The FE Thomas mailing tube shown in the photos is not included in the sale of this rod. It can be found separately listed for sale here.
