Thramer, A.J. - Classic Taper Series -- 8'3 3/2 5wt Bamboo Rod
For sale here is a hollow-built A.J. Thramer 8'3" 3/2 5wt bamboo rod from his Classic Taper Series. The rod is based on a Gillum taper. Serial no. I201. The rod remains in mint condition having only been lawn cast. All sections are arrow-straight.
The rod features darkly flame tempered cane with copper colored wraps. Black and white tipping at the winding check, a nod to its Gillum pedigree. Deeply blued guides. Ring hook keeper. Classic cigar grip measures 6 1/2" in length that sits very well in the hand. Black aluminum down-locking reel seat over an African mahogany spacer. Blued Swiss-style truncated ferrules with a perfect fit. The rod weighs in at 4.60 oz. The action is a wonderfully crisp and smooth medium-fast with excellent recovery. The versatile taper maintains a terrific balance between strength from the gradually swelled butt and finesse and tippet protection in the fine tips. The length lends itself well mending and playing the fish. Includes the original bag with hang tag and tube with label.
Don't miss out on this superb rod from A.J. Thramer.
