For sale here is a rod you won't find on the resale market very often, a Carlson Four quad made by Dana Gray, owner of the Carlson Rod Company. Dana is at the top of the list of worldwide cane rod makers and it's well known that his waiting list for a new rod is ~ seven years. This rod has been fished very sparingly but remains in near mint condition. 8 feet in length. Three sections with two tips. Medium fast action for a five weight line. Ferrule fit is excellent. The rod weighs 4 3/4 oz.
Dana uses highest quality bamboo culms that are 50 years old in constructing these beauties. He makes his own ferrules. The guides and ferrules on this rod offered here are oxidized and the finish remains 100% intact, even on the tip tops where the wear develops the quickest over time from contact with the fly line. All wraps are still 100% perfect. Anything you see in the photos is glare from the natural light or glare from the other metal close by. The aluminum up-locking reel seat is unblemished. The grip shows the slightest of soiling. The rod comes with the original bag and brass-capped and die-stamped tube.
Don't miss this chance to be the proud owner of a very historic rod and one that is coveted by all cane rod enthusiasts!
