Phillipson Epoxite 7'6 5-6wt Fiberglass Fly Rod

SKU: VFT2397

For sale here is a Phillipson Epoxite 7'6" 5-6wt 2/2 fiberglass fly rod. The rod is in excellent original condition. This is not a 3M rod, but rather it was made while Bill Phillipson still owned the company. The blank is a clay color with mocha wraps and off-white tipping. There is a small worn spot on the signature wrap that could use a dap of varnish at some point. Bright guides. U-shaped hook-keeper. The ferrules fit together tightly as they should. The females feature a brass ring around them for added strength and durability. The labels on the rod remain bold and free of defect. Cigar grip 5 3/4" in length. The cork shows only light soiling. Rust colored anodized aluminum down-locking reel seat with a cork spacer. There are a few nicks and scratches on the butt cap. The rod weighs 2.70 oz. The action is classic medium-fast glass. The fine tips allow for precise delicate casts while the butt is stout enough to load a good amount of line and land a hefty fish. The rod includes the original bag and a replacement tube. The tube is maroon aluminum with gold-colored fittings. The tube has been altered to fit the rod length though this does not affect its use. Don't miss out on this sweet vintage glass Phillipson Epoxite ready for the water.
