Wright & McGill Granger / Gary Lacey Model 8040 DeLuxe Bamboo Rod


For sale here is a Gary Lacey made third generation Granger DeLuxe Model 8040 - 8' 3/2 for a 5wt line. The rod is in near mint condition. Browntone cane, jade and black jasper silks with four bands of goldenrod tipping. Goldenrod at the winding check. Signature wrap like the guide wraps. Blued guides. The tip-tops are similar to early 20th century design, circular as opposed to the pear-shaped perfection tip-tops later used. Custom Granger replica ferrules with witness marks. The fit is nice and tight as it should be. Nickel silver winding check. Western-style grip in excellent shape with very little soiling. Nickel-silver sliding band reel seat that is a replica of the early Granger seats. Rod weighs 5.20 oz, a little heftier compared to the typical 8040 Model around 4 1/2 oz. that is better suited for a DT4 line. The ferrules are 15/64 and 10/64. The action is medium-fast. Includes canvas bag and original tube. The tube design was inspired by the original Granger Registered tube. Black with a silver aluminum label.
