The rod features a sanded maroon blank with matching wraps and silver tipping. Bright guides. Ceramic stripper. The white script remains clean and bold. Ring hook keeper. Full wells grip 6" in length with light soiling outside the shrinkwrap. Aluminum down-locking reel seat over a rosewood spacer. The sleeve-over ferrules fit together nice and tight as they should.

A great rod to have around when delicate presentations are needed. Includes the original bag and tube.
