Sharpe's of Aberdeen - Scottie Spliced 13' 9wt Bamboo Rod


For sale here is a classic impregnated Sharpe's of Aberdeen "Scottie" spliced 13' 9wt bamboo salmon rod. Serial no. 118125. The rod is in excellent condition. The only issues are a few of the guide wraps are a bit dry and will require a light varnish touch-up at some point. Also, the cast aluminum butt cap has cracked most likely due to swelling cork. Thankfully the crack is in no way a hindrance to the use and function of the rod. The butt cap remains secure. All sections are full length and arrow straight. 

Beautiful impregnated browntone cane with crimson wraps. Bright guides. The decals and script remain clean and bold. U-shaped hook keeper. The two-handed grip shows only light soiling with light use of filler. It measures 23" from winding check to fighting butt. The hard rubber butt remains in like new condition free of cracking or wear. The spliced joints are all in excellent condition void of any cracks or damage. Includes wooden splice protectors. There are also witness marks for easy alignment. The rod weighs 17.20 oz. Includes the original bag with label.
