Zumbrunn, Kurt - 6'9" 2/1 5wt Hollowbuilt Bamboo Rod

For sale here is a 6'9" 2-piece / single tip hollow built 5wt bamboo rod from Swiss rodmaker Kurt Zumbrunn. Kurt brings several decades of rod making experience to his current designs, which have been tested in the technical mountain streams of the Swiss Alps. This rod is built on his Tri-hex / EVO6 blank, which creates a hollow triangular form with strips at the apexes. Blonde cane with bronze guides. Wraps are transparent w/ black accents, giving the windings the appearance of birch bark. 7.5" grip is made of stacked and oiled birch bark, and the mortised reel seat is of curly European birch. Nickel silver cap & ring reel seat hardware with NS checks and bright NS ferrules. The sections are straight and full length, and the ferrules fit perfectly. Weight is 4.41oz and the overall length is closer to 6'8". A strong 5wt, action on the faster side of medium fast. It turns over a long leader with easy and it feels capable of handling large fish.
