Thomas & Thomas Specialist Bamboo Rod 7'6" 2/2 #4


For sale here is a very fine Thomas & Thomas "Specialist" bamboo rod -- 7 1/2' 2/2 for a 4 weight line. Serial no. 5529. Mint unused condition. All sections are straight. 

The rod features wonderful mottle-flamed cane. Transparent wraps with cinnamon tipping; chestnut at the ferrules. Flawless varnish finish. Tips numbered. Blued hardware. Ring hook keeper. Very handsome swelled butt, a common T&T characteristic. Nickel silver hexagonal winding check.  Cigar grip 5 1/2" in length. Elegantly machined cap and ring reel seat over a gorgeous mortised walnut spacer. "Thomas & Thomas MAKERS" engraved in the butt cap. The rod weighs 4.10 oz. The action is a medium-fast dry-fly with a good deal of backbone thanks in part to the swelled butt. The thin tips allow for the utmost finesse and delicacy - a deadly fishing tool. Original bag with stiffening dowel and T&T tag as well as the original tube with brass fittings and label.

This rod exemplifies why T&T has a reputation for the finest craftsmanship. You won't be disappointed. Retail is currently running $3,150 for a new rod from T&T. Grab this one before it's gone at this price!
