For sale here is an E.C. Powell - 9'6" bamboo rod. B-9 taper. Three sections with two tips. The rod is in excellent condition. All sections are full length and straight. The second tip was made at a later date and is noticeably lighter in color and roughly the same taper, though not as precise as the original Powell taper, measuring +/-  .003" - .010" (measurements were taken with a Starrett micrometer on the same 6" stations on both tips). Lovely browntone cane with goldenrod silks. Intermediate wraps on the butt and mid sections. The third guide up on the original tip has been re-wrapped. Bright hardware throughout. Garrison-style hook keeper. Signature E.C. Powell grip is soiled and ever so slightly ridged but in otherwise fine shape. Aluminum up-locking reel seat with bakelite spacer. Maker stamp on the reel seat. Ferrule sizes 11/64 and 19/64. The fit is nice and tight as it should be. The moisture cap has unfortunately gone missing on the male ferrule of the mid section. The action is medium-fast.The rod weighs 6 oz. and feels best with a 7wt line. Original bag and tube.
