For sale here is a Per Brandin hollow-built six-strip (hex) bamboo rod. 8'3 for a 4 weight line. The rod weighs 3.2 oz. Two sections with two tips. Made in 2008. Unfished condition with the paper still on the grip. The rod has been assembled and cast a few times.
From Per's description of this taper, "At 8'3" and a #4 line, this rod fills the need for a longer rod for spring creeks and smaller flies, but still with a very positive action. It has become the rod of choice for me and several other very experienced anglers on rivers such as the Henry's Fork and Missouri where smaller flies are the norm. The extra length of this rod compared to more traditional bamboo rods casting a #4 line gives this rod an edge in casting and line control."
The rod features Per's typical flared wells grip, reel seat with a gorgeous mahogany spacer with oxidized cap & ring. The rod also features Per's 'micro' swiss style ferrules. Wraps are cinnamon with black tipping at the ferrules, tip-top (one and two black bands), and above the winding check. Beautiful red/rust colored agate stripping guide. Comes in Per's brass-capped tube, made in-house and the original bag.
