Wright & McGill Granger - Victory Model 9050 Bamboo Rod
For sale here is a Wright & McGill Granger "Victory" - Model 9050. 9' 3/2 for a 5 or 6 weight line. The rod is in excellent mostly original condition. The reel seat has been replaced with a Phillipson down-locking of the same period. Also, there is a 1 3/4" invisible repair wrap 4" up from the ferrule on the second tip. All sections are full length and straight.
Classic ammoniated cane with bronze and black variegated silks. Blued guides. The script remains dark and bold. Reverse-half wells grip with a rather wide diameter at the nose almost making it a full-wells. Replacement green aluminum down-locking reel seat very similar to those seen on Phillipson rods. Pleasing ferrule fit. The rod weighs in at 5.20 oz. The action is a classic medium fast with a good amount of authority in the butt section thanks in part to the swelled butt. Includes the original bag and fiberboard tube with label 95% intact.
