Darryl Whitehead 7' 2/2 #3

The reel seat is a cap and ring slide band with a gunstock-quality mortised Circassian walnut insert. Both the cap and ring are fully engraved by Paolo Barbetti and the cap states "Whitehead, Maker, No 79". Flamed rod shaft wrapped in brown with black edges and extra apricot and black edges at ferrules and keeper. Spiral node pattern construction with mirrored tips. No keeper on this rod.
