Carpenter, Cris - 7'9" 3/2 4wt, Spliced Joint Quad Bamboo Rod
For sale here is a 7'9" 4wt, 3-piece / 2-tip spliced joint quad bamboo rod made by Cris Carpenter. This is a beautiful hollow-built quad in excellent+/near mint condition. Straw colored cane with oxidized guides wrapped in transparent gold silk with pale olive tipping. Bright single-foot tip tops accent the rod nicely. 6" cork grip with blacked cap & ring reel seat over mortised cork spacer. All sections are straight & full length, and the fitment of the spliced joints is perfect. Weight is 2.80 oz. This was a special order for Cris (an early 3-piece spliced joint rod), though he has since made a handful of 3-piecers. I have cast a few of his spliced joint quads and they are absolutely delightful rods. The action of spliced joint rods closely emulates that of a one-piece rod, without the logistical considerations of a 1-piecer. This one is in near-new condition and ready to go. Sold with original cloth rod bag and cream colored tube with gold makers decal.
