Orvis Impregnated "Pace Changer" Bamboo Rod


For sale here is an Orvis Impregnated "Pace Changer" 7' and 7'3" 2/2 for a 5wt line. The rod was made with two tips of different lengths, hence the name "Pace Changer". The rod is in excellent++ condition. Serial number 70950, the rod was made in 1973. The grip was replaced by Orvis in 2009, the rod will include the invoice for the repair. Chestnut brown wraps over rich medium dark tempered cane. The replaced cigar grip is in pristine condition. Aluminum down-locking reel seat with a Walnut spacer. Ferrule size 11/64 and the fit great. In the 7' configuration the rod has a nice medium-fast dry-fly action; in the 7'3" the rod is a bit slower. Described as a 6wt on the tube and rod but a line size down works best on older Orvis rods. The actual weight on a digital scale is 3.55 oz. and is the same with both tips. Rod comes with original bag and tube with green and silver foil label. There is a dent in the tube where the label is but does not effect the use of the tube.
