Heddon Pal - #75 "Black Beauty" 7' 5wt Fiberglass Fly Rod
For sale here is a 7' for a 5wt Heddon Pal "Black Beauty" Fiberglass rod in excellent++, un-fished condition. Heddon released the model #75 in 1954 and the 7' E-HEH (5 weight) was the lightest and shortest, and consequently most desirable configuration. This rod has been lawn cast but does not appear to have seen the water. Even the plastic shrink wrap is still present, despite being cracked. Clear coated brown phenolic glass blank with reverse half wells grip and down locking reel seat with black spacer. Black windings with orange tipping, the same colors as the popular #17 Black Beauty bamboo rods. Original bag and tube with correctly marked, albeit faded label. Tube has the original stopper intact, a rarity for Heddon rods of this era. Also included is a blank warranty card. Finding these shorter trout rods in excellent condition is uncommon, but finding an un-fished example is almost impossible. Don't let this gem get away.
