Edwards, EW -- "Special" Bamboo Rod - 9' 3/2 #5/6


For sale here is an EW Edwards "Special" 9' 3/2. The rod is in excellent condition. All sections are straight and full length with the exception of one of the tips being down 1 1/2". The magenta tipped yellow silks compliment the honey colored cane very well, the hook-keeper has been detached and lost at some point. The classic Eustis Edwards script in yellow writing is completely intact. Red agate stripping guide and tip-top. There is a replacement, perfection-style tip-top on the short tip. The cigar shaped grip is in excellent condition with very little soiling and fits the hand nicely. Down-locking sliding band reel seat over a wood spacer. The ferrules fit together very well. The rod has a medium fast action for a 6 wt, though perhaps a DT5 as well. Rod comes with its original Edwards bag in fine condition and marked "Edwards Fishing Rods" in red as well as the original Edwards labeled tube. Ferrule sizes 16/64 and 11/64. The rod weighs 5.20 oz.

Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
