E.C. Powell 9' 2/2 #5/6 Bamboo Rod


Get measurements and tapers ----****


For sale here is an E.C. Powell 9' 2/2 5-6wt __-Taper semi-hollow bamboo rod. The rod is in excellent restored condition with a few exceptions. One tip has received a poor repair wrap 10" down from the tip-top. This tip is also a 1/4" longer than the other due to the bad alignment of the repair. There is also a third tip with the last 5 1/4" broken off indicating one of the other two was a repair tip though it is hard to tell which one. The rod could perhaps be a Tony Maslan or Walt Powell built rod. All sections are full length with a very mild set in the butt and sets in the tip sections.  

Lovely pumpkin-toned cane. Honey wraps with black and gold wraps at the winding check. Bright replacement guides. The script was lost and has been re-written during the replacement. U-shaped hook keeper. The signature E.C. Powell-style grip measures 6 1/4" in length with mild soiling. Aluminum up-locking reel seat over a bakelite spacer. The seat features the "E.C. POWELL MAKER MARYSVILLE, CAL." stamp. The ferrules are size 14/64 with a great fit. The rod weighs 4.30 oz. The action is a smooth medium-fast with capable of considerable finesse and delicacy. The length of the rod allows for exceptional mending and drifts. Includes the original bag and no tube.

E.C. Powell is arguably one of the most influential makers of the last 75 years. Don't miss the chance to own one of his innovative rods at a great price!
