Hardy Bros. - The No. 2 De Luxe 9'6 3/2 6-7wt Bamboo Rod


For sale here is a Hardy Palakona The No. 2 De Luxe - a 9'6" 3/2 6-7wt bamboo rod. Serial number E53191, made in 1941. The rod is in excellent original condition with a few exceptions. It may have received a light touch-up coat of varnish at some point. Also, the varnish displays a bit of minor bag burn in areas.  All sections are full length and straight save a slight set in one tip section. 

Moderately tempered cane with crimson silks and full intermediates in a dark golden thread color. Agate stripping guide and tip-tops. Reverse English-style guides. The script remains clean and bold. The full wells grip is 6 3/4' in length and appears to have been cleaned at some point as it is quite worn and ridged in areas yet clean. Aluminum up-locking reel seat over a handsome bakelite spacer. The blued nickel silver ferrules are size 12/64 and 18/64 with an excellent fit. The rod weighs 6.25 oz. with a smooth and authoritative medium-fast action. Well suited as an all around 6wt. The rod includes a replacement bag of the same era and no tube. 

 Don't miss out on this great, old Hardy ready for the water.
