Orvis Madison 8' 6-7wt Bamboo Rod


For sale here is an impregnated Orvis Madison 8' 2/2 bamboo rod with a labeled weight of 4 3/8 oz. Two sections with two tips. The rod is in excellent restored condition, though one of the tips is down 5". All sections are straight. Moderately dark tempered cane. Chestnut brown wraps. The wraps and varnish are in excellent condition, matching the originals very well. Bright guides, U-shaped hook keeper. There is a dark blemish under the hook keeper from use. Script on the butt is fully intact, though the serial numbers were lost in the restoration. Cigar-style grip with a slender nose 6 1/2" in length. The grip is only lightly soiled. Aluminum down-locking reel seat with a fine varnished wood spacer. The blued ferrules are size 12/64 and the fit is nice and tight as it should be. The actual weight on our digital scale is 4.40 oz. with the full length tip. The rod is labeled as an 8wt (GBF), but this rod feels much closer to a 6wt. The action is medium-fast and quite versatile. Orvis bag and aluminum tube with blue and gold foil label are included with the rod. An excellent all around Orvis rod at a great price.
