All sections are full length and straight. This model was one of the three special rods Payne began offering in the 1950's, along with the Bass Bug Rod and the Streamer Rod. Each is very rarely seen!

The western-style grip measures 6 1/2" in length. Aluminum up-locking reel seat over a gorgeous Spanish cedar spacer. The reel seat hardware bears the “Payne” trademark stamp. The rod comes with a 6" replacement fighting butt. The ferrule fit is excellent. Ferrule plugs included. The rod weighs 5 3/4 oz. without the extension and 8 1/2 oz with it. Powerful medium fast action. Includes the original bag with hang tag intact, the original labeled tube, and a canvas tube cover with a dedicated sleeve for the fighting butt. 

A very desirable and very scarce Payne rod, especially in such fine condition. Don't miss out as you may not see another one like it in a very long time!
