Orvis Model 99 9' 7wt Bamboo Rod


For sale here is an Orvis Model 99 bamboo rod -- 9' 2/1 6-7wt with a marked weight of 6 1/8 oz. Serial #46171, built in 1967. The rod is in excellent original condition. Both sections are full length and straight.

The rod features moderately tempered cane with bright crimson wraps. The script remains clean and bold free of defects. U-shaped hook-keeper. Cigar grip 6 3/4" in length with moderate soiling and minor ridging at the thumb position. Classic Orvis aluminum down-locking reel seat over a walnut spacer. The seat and spacer remain in excellent condition. The bright nickel silver ferrules are size 16/64 with a perfect fit, nice and tight. The rod weighs 5.75 oz. The action is medium-fast with plenty of power and though the script proposes a 9wt line, we think it will excel with a 7wt. A line size or two down is often better suited with these older and larger Orvis rods. A great streamer or all-around big water trout rod. Includes the original bag and tube.

Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
