Wright & McGill Granger Victory Model 8040 Bamboo Rod


For sale here a Wright & McGill Granger Victory 8040 bamboo rod -- 8' 3/2 4-5wt line. The rod is in excellent original condition. All sections are full length and straight. 

The rod features classic ammoniated browntone cane. Rust and black variegated silks. Spiral signature wrap midway between the grip and stripping guide. Blued guides. The script remains as clean and bold as the day it placed there. Gradually swelled butt. The western-style grip is only lightly soiled. The classic nickel silver patented up-locking reel seat works with nickel silver ferrules with witness marks. The ferrule fit is excellent. The rod has a pleasant medium to medium-fast action well suited as an all-around trout rod. The swelled butt provides a good amount of backbone while the thin tips allow for considerable finesse and delicacy. The rod weighs 4.70 oz. 

Includes the original bag and fiberboard tube with label fully intact, although there is a stain. Plastic has been placed over the label for protection. The 8040 is considered by many to be the best of the Granger/W&M line-up. Don't miss out on this terrific original example ready for the water.
