For sale here is an impregnated Orvis S/S/S 8'9" 2/2 10wt bamboo rod. Serial no. 67006, made in 1972. The rod is in excellent condition with a few exceptions. There is a 3 7/8" repair wrap on the butt section that appears to have mended a node lift or delamination of one of the strips. The hook keeper and winding check have been re-wrapped and varnished. There is a slightly bent guide on of the tips. Lastly, the guides appear to have been re-wrapped as well as one of the ferrules. 

The rod features moderately tempered cane with caramel wraps and bright guides. The script remains clean and bold with the exception of slight wear in isolated areas. The cigar grip with thumb and palm indentations measures 6 1/2" in length with heavy soiling and a bit of light ridging.
