Hardy Palakona "The Deluxe Rod" 9'6" 3/2


For sale here is a scarce Hardy Palakona "The Deluxe Rod". Serial number E19898 made in 1930. Nine feet six inches, three sections with two tips. The rod is completely original and in good condition with a few issues. The varnish is beginning to sag and crack in places, a good polishing could help with this. There is a fishing set in one of the tips. All wraps are secure. Burgundy silks with full brown intermediates. Agate stripper and tip-tops. Unique guides that look like a cross between snake guides and spinning guides. Uplocking aluminum reel seat over bakelite. The grip is soiled and a chip is missing over the reel seat hood. Medium action for a 6wt line. Ferrule sizes 18/64 and 12/64 and the fit is very nice. Rod weighs 6 1/8 oz. Comes with its original Hardy bag and tube with Hardy tube cover. The rod could use a bit of work but overall it is a great example of a Hardy rod from this period.
