For sale here is a scarce Model DeLuxe # 60 - 9 1/2 feet 3/2 for a 7 weight line. Very good condition. All sections are full length and straight. Made circa 1930s-40s. The rod weighs 6 3/8 oz. Line weight 6/7. Blued nickel silver ferrules size 19/64 and 12/64 (made before the "F" sizing vernacular). Brown thread wraps with dark brown edges. Remington Arms Company hand-checkered Circassian walnut grip and reel seat insert with up-locking blued nickel silver hardware. Red agate stripping guide insert. Includes Heddon labeled cloth bag (bag is for a 9 foot model) and labeled aluminum tube. Some thread has unraveled on one of the male ferrules as you will see in the photos. Varnish is in good shape. Wraps are mostly in solid condition except as noted and a little fraying at the edges here and there. A very nice find for someone's collection!
