Orvis - Powerflex 8'9 7wt 2 pc. Boron Graphite Fly Rod


For sale here is an Orvis "Powerflex" 8'9" 7wt boron graphite fly rod - 2 piece. Serial no. 0484. The rod is in excellent shape with a bit of light honest fishing wear. The rod features a staggered ferrule construction. The butt section is 3 1/8" shorter than the tip section designed to create a specific action. 

The rod features an unsanded blank with dark teal wraps and bright guides. U-shaped hook keeper. Ceramic stripping guide. Sleeve over ferrules with a nice and tight fit as it should be. The Western-style grip measures 7 1/2" in length with mild soiling. Bright aluminum up-locking reel seat over a walnut spacer. The action is on the medium side of medium-fast by today's graphite standards. The rod is capable of considerable finesse and accuracy while still providing strength and power. Though marked as a 7 weight a 6 weight line will suit this rod better. Perfect for streamers, big bushy flies, and hopper-dropper set-ups. Don't miss out on this fantastic vintage graphite with a wonderful action you'll be hard-pressed to find in a modern graphite rod. Includes original bag and tube with maroon and silver foil label.
