For sale here is a Winston 8'3" 3/2 4wt bamboo rod in excellent+ used condition. A Brackett-era rod with fiberglass ferrules, serial #3658. Featuring lightly tempered cane with oxidized snake guides and red agate stripping guide. Wraps are transparent orange with oxblood accents. Sections are straight, full length and serialized. Fiberglass ferrules fit perfectly; this was a special option at the time, and very few rods were built with these low-profile glass ferrules. Strap & ring hook keeper with bamboo winding check and 6.75" cork grip (clean & smooth). Nickel silver cap & ring reel seat over fine zebrawood spacer. Scripted weight is 3 3/8oz, but it's closer to 3 3/4oz on my scale. The rod casts a DT or WF4 well, with action on the medium side of medium fast. Nice power reserves, it feels like it would be a great roll caster. The rod has clearly seen little use and packs into the original bag and tube with Winston decal.
