Paul Young Para 17 Bamboo Rod 8'6" 2/2 #8/9


For sale here is a Paul H. Young Parabolic 17 bamboo rod, complete with original bag and tube. The rod is in near mint restored condition. The rod is full length and straight. Originally built by Paul Young. The restoration was done by Steve Blake, a remarkable job in fact. The script on the rod had to be re-inked by Steve and I think he executed it very well, almost to the point of not being able to tell that it isn't from Paul's hand. The ferrules are size 19/64 andthe ferrule fit on both tips is perfect. This 8 1/2 footer is a very strong rod suited best for an 8 or 9 weight line. The Powell-style grip is in near perfect shape. Super Z ferrules. The rod comes with a fighting butt and weighs 6 3/4 oz with it attached, 6 1/4 oz. without it.
