There are invisible repair wraps on both tips. Both of the tips remain original length. On the first tip the wrap is 10" down from the tip-top and is 4 1/2" in length. On the second tip the repair is 5" down from the tip-top and 5" in length. The repairs look professional and are fairly unnoticeable.

    The rod features medium tempered cane with copper-colored wraps. Pale gold and black tipping at the winding check. The winding check wraps and snake guide hook-keeper appear to be original.
