Edwards Quadrate 7' Spinning Rod

SKU: VFT1584

For sale here is a rare W.E. Edwards & Son "Quadrate" 7' 2/2 bamboo spinning rod for lures roughly in the 1/4 - 5/8 oz. range. The rod is in excellent original condition with a few issues. The first tip has a repair wrap extending 6 3/4" up from the ferrule. The second tip appears to be a replacement as the guides are different. Also, the butt section ferrules wrap will need to be re-wrapped at some point, it is beginning to come unraveled. Lastly, the unique Edwards script has worn off. All sections are full length with minor sets in the tips. 

Beautifully tempered cane with bronze wraps. U-shaped hook-keeper. Handsome bakelite winding check. The grip is 12 1/2" in length with a few indentations from a reel seat and light soiling. Dual aluminum sliding band reel seat with a bakelite butt cap. The nickel silver ferrules fit together nicely though a good cleaning wouldn't hurt. The rod weighs 5.25 oz. This is a terrific spinning rod for trout, smallmouth, and panfish. 

Includes original bag and original tube with label. Don't miss out on this great little spinning rod ready and waiting to sling a lure up under that dock or branch you've been eyeing.
