Phillipson Ed M. Hunter Approved Bamboo Rod 8'6 3/2 5-6wt


For sale here is a Phillipson "Ed M. Hunter Approved" 8'6" 3/2 5-6wt bamboo rod. The rod is in unfished condition. All sections are full length with a minor set in one tip. 

Handsome dark ammoniated cane with jet black wraps. Bronzed guides. The script remains clean and bold. The full-wells grip is 6 1/2" in length with the plastic still on the grip. Although, the plastic is slightly cracked and must be handled with care. Aluminum down-locking reel seat. The rod weighs 5 1/8 oz. The nickel silver ferrules are size 17/64 and 11/64 with an excellent fit. The action is medium-fast with excellent recovery. The swelled butt gives the rod a good amount of backbone while the thin tips allow for finesse and tippet protection. A terrific trout rod. Includes original bag and near perfect labeled tube with the Dave Cook price tag 100% intact. Don't miss out on this beautiful example of an Ed M. Hunter Approved.

The "Ed M. Hunter Approved" was made by Phillipson for the Dave Cook sporting goods store in Denver, Colorado. Though not sold or marked as a Phillipson, the rod is of the same quality as Phillipson marked rods. Ed Hunter was a sports writer for the Denver Post.
