Kusse, Ron - "Magnum Opus" Bamboo Rod 7'6" 3/2 5wt

SKU: VFT5849

For sale here is a masterpiece from Ron Kusse, from his venerable "Magnum Opus" series of bamboo rods. The Magnum Opus is the most sought-after rod made by Kusse and it is said to have taken him 120 to 150 hours to make each one. This one is 7 1/2 feet, three sections with two tips, for a five weight line. The rod features a rattan handle, bright nickel silver slide band reel seat with maker and model stamp, full intermediate wraps, dark gold wraps, agate stripper, bright nickel silver ferrules. The rod is in near mint condition with very slight signs of use, and comes with its extremely nice original bag and all-brass tube. This sale comes with an original Kusse rod catalog and mailing envelope as well as a xeroxed copy of a very interesting nine-page article about Mr. Kusse, published in The New Yorker magazine in 1987. A prior bill of sale from 2010 is also included.
