Wright & McGill Granger Premier Model 9050 Bamboo Rod


For sale here is a very scarce Wright & McGill Granger Premier Model 9050 -- 9' 3/2 5-6wt. The Premier was one of the highest grades of rods produced by WMG and Granger, second only to the Registered. As such, higher quality cane (from the same culm) and much more attention to detail went into making the rod. The rod is in excellent+ restored condition. All sections are full length and straight. Classic ammoniated cane that Granger rods are so well known for, complemented with brassy-golden silks. The script on the rod remains crisp and bold. Western-style grip with light soiling, free of any other defects. The patented, nickel silver, up-locking reel seat is in fine condition and operates smoothly. The ferrules are size 18/64 and 12/64, the fit is nice and tight as it should be. The rod weighs 5.80 oz. The action is quite fast, on the faster side of medium-fast, in part due to the swelled butt. This is a true western rod, capable of making accurate casts in heavy winds with large flies. It has the strength to land large fish in short order. Well suited for a 6 weight line though some may find the newer heavier 5 weight lines work well. The rod includes its original bag and original burgundy aluminum tube. Don't miss out on this classic western rod at a great price.
