Goodwin Granger Favorite Model 9050 Bamboo Rod


For sale here is a wonderful example of a Goodwin Granger "Favorite" Model 9050 3/2 5-6wt. The rod is in excellent overall condition. The rod is almost all original with one exception. Someone has secured three of the guides with a few extra turns of gold and black variegated thread. There is also a bit of very minor heat damage to the varnish. This is largely undetectable and could almost certainly be taken out with a good polish. All sections are full length and straight. 

Classic Granger ammoniated cane. Gold and black variegated wraps with gold tipping and full intermediates in gold (thanks to the aging of the varnish). The stamped script remains clean and bold. Handsome gradually swelled butt. The western-style grip is soiled and lightly ridged with a small indentation towards the reel seat. The classic up-locking Granger reel seat is in excellent condition void of scratches and dents and operates smoothly as it should. The ferrules fit nice and tight. The rod weighs 5.80 oz. The action is classic Granger, on the medium side of medium-fast and great for far and fine work on a lake or larger river. Includes original bag and tube with label 95% intact.
