Orvis Madison 7' 5wt Bamboo Rod


For sale here is an impregnated Orvis Madison 7' 5wt 2/1 bamboo rod with a labeled weight of 3 3/8 oz. Serial #77353 made in 1975. The rod is in excellent original condition with the exception of the male and female ferrules being re-set masterfully by Mike Clark at South Creek Ltd. All wraps are sound. Both sections are straight and full length. Caramel silks and warm browntone tempered cane for a classic look. Aluminum down-locking reel seat over Walnut. There is a bit of wear on the spacer from a reel foot. Cigar grip with skinny nose characteristic of shorter Orvis rods. The rod has a lovely action on the faster side of medium-fast. The ferrules are 10/64 and the fit is excellent. The rod is described as a 6wt on the rod and tube but a line size down definitely works best for these Orvis rods. Original bag and tube with green and silver label. Actual weight on digital scale 3 1/2 oz. A great all-around trout rod!
