For sale here is a Douglas Duck Model FFX-8. An 8' 2/2 5-6wt based on a Pinky Gillum taper. Serial no. 2062, made in 1999. The rod is in excellent+ original condition. 

The rod features a lovely and mildly tempered cane finish with transparent caramel colored wraps. The winding check and male ferrules are wrapped in chestnut tipped in black and white. One of the tip-tops is wrapped in black to distinguish it from the other. Blued guides. The script is clean and bold. Garrison-style hook keeper. Cigar grip 6 5/8" in length with only the lightest of soiling. Nickel silver cap and ring reel seat over a tiger maple spacer. The Swiss-style ferrules are size 13/64 with a perfect fit. Includes ferrule plug tethered to the rod bag. The rod weighs 4.60 oz. The superb dry-fly action is on the faster side of medium-fast. Even though the rod has been used only a few times if at all, the rod sections are not entirely straight if that bothers you. Original bag and tube.
