The script remains clean and bold, the tips are numbered for convenience. Bright red agate stripping guide with bright guides. Bronzed ring hook keeper. Hexagonal bamboo winding check. Reverse half wells grip, 5 7/8" in length with only the lightest of handling marks. Nickel silver down-locking reel seat over a stunning Rewarewa (New Zealand honeysuckle) spacer. The R.L.
