Winston, R.L. - 8' 2/2 3 3/4oz (5wt) Bamboo Rod

For sale here is an 8' 3 3/4oz 3-piece / 2-tip 5wt Winston bamboo rod. Very good used condition, a Glenn Brackett-era rod from the early 1990's. Light/medium toned cane with bright guides wrapped in transparent apricot windings & oxblood tipping. Duronz ferrules fit perfectly and are overwrapped on the females. All sections are straight, full length & serialized (#2347), and the tips are numbered for ease of rotation. The original owner's name is inked on the butt. Strap & ring hook keeper, 6" cork grip (slightly soiled with a hint of ridging) and NS cap & ring reel seat over zebrawood spacer. Judging by the patina on the reel seat hardware and the soiling on the grip this rod was used but very well cared for. The varnish is in nice shape and the rod is ready to hit the water. Scripted weight is 3 3/4oz but my scale reads just under 4oz. This is the lighter weight 8' 5wt taper from Winston, they called it "medium slow”, but I find it to be more on the medium side. A very smooth caster with a DT4 but not wimpy. Sold in the original red bag and aftermarket leather clad tube with the original owner's name stamped on it.
