Jenkins 50th Anniversary Quad Bamboo Rod 8' 2/2 #5/6


For sale here is a scarce Jenkins 50th Anniversary Quad bamboo rod. Model P480. Mint original condition with plastic still on the grip. 8' 2/2 for a 5 or 6 weight line. Impregnated. The rod has "a powerful, parabolic action similar to a Paul Young Para 15" as described by Steve Jenkins. Medium flamed cane with deep burgundy silks. Oxidized Phillipson step-down style ferrules in size 14/64. Black anodized aluminum internal locking reel seat based on the classic Granger up-locking reel seat. Jenkins trademark cherry wood insert. The rod weighs 4 5/8 oz. Original bag and original powder coated black aluminum tube with brass cap. There is a small dent 3/4 up the tube but does not hinder holding/protecting the rod in any way. Delightful dry fly action on the medium side of medium fast. A rare find indeed and one you don't see often, even in the finest of collections!

Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
