Thomas & Thomas "Beaverkill" Bamboo Rod 8' 2/2 #5


For sale here is a Thomas and Thomas "Beaverkill" -- 8' 2/2 5wt bamboo rod. Serial no. 5646. The rod is in excellent+ original condition. All sections are full length and straight.

Moderately flame tempered cane with amber wraps and honey tipping. The rod features matched tips cut from the same culm of bamboo, an upgrade to T&T's standard pricing of $3,150 for this model. Chestnut wraps with amber and black tipping at the ferrules. Blued guides. The script remains clean and bold. The tips are numbered for convenience. Handsome largely swelled butt, a T&T signature feature. Ring hook keeper. Nickel silver hexagonal check. The reverse half wells grip show minor evidence of handling. Bright nickel silver up-locking reel seat over a mortised burled walnut spacer. The Swiss style step-down ferrules are size 13/64 with a perfect fit. The rod weighs 5.50 oz. The medium-fast dry-fly action is quite smooth and finds a terrific balance between the power of the swelled butt and the finesse and delicacy of the thin tips. Includes the original bag with stiffening dowel and the original tube with fine brass fittings. 

The T&T name is synonymous with exceptional craftsmanship and quality, both of which are apparent in this rod.
