G&G Goldstar Bamboo Rod 7' 4wt


For sale here is a very scarce rod made by Dutch rodmakers, Gerrit Glezer and Ger Vroomen, or "G&G". This was their "Goldstar" model. 7 feet for a 4 weight line. Two sections with one tip, as was standard. They utilized a fascinating nodeless construction of alternating dark and light strips of cane to produce a visually stunning appearance. This rod comes complete with all the bells and whistles they offered back in the 1990s during their collaboration. Gold plated hardware, intricate engraving of the German silver ferrules and reel seat ring, cigar grip (the foregrip is hexagonal due to the six strip swelled butt), gorgeous wood spacer with uplocking ring, and a very fine leather rod tube with rod bag. The action of the rod is medium fast with fine tips (size 4/64). The ferrules are size 11/64. The rod weighs 3 3/4 oz. It remains in mint condition having never been fished, only lawn cast.

Ger Vroomen has a website currently and his price for an equivalent new one-tip rod is nearly $3,000. This one is offered at less than half that!
