The rod remains in excellent original condition. All sections are full length and straight.

The rod features lemon yellow silks tipped hunter green which was a departure from their more standard designs. Carboloy stripping guide. Ring hook-keeper. The script remains as clean and bold as the day it was written. Handsome swelled butt. Nickel silver check. The cigar grip measures 5" in length with only light soiling. Elegant nickel silver cap and ring reel seat with the traditional butternut spacer. Leonard stamp on the butt cap. The nickel silver ferrules have a terrific fit.
