Karstetter, Marty - 8'3" 2/2, 4-5wt Hollow Built Bamboo Fly Rod

For sale here is an 8'3" 2-piece / 2-tip 4-5wt hollow built bamboo rod made by Marty Karstetter. Serial #15610, excellent used condition. Medium tempered cane with 2x2 nodes, snake guides and agate stripper wrapped in transparent toffee-colored windings and chestnut accents. All sections are straight and full length, and the bright Swiss-style ferrules fit perfectly. 6.5" grip is lightly soiled but smooth, and the rod is fitted with a bright cap & ring reel seat over dark wood spacer. The butt cap is pinned and retains the maker's stamp. 3 5/8oz scripted weight, although it measures a hair over 3 3/4 by my scale. Crisp, positive action, on the faster side of medium fast. I like it with both 4 and 5wt lines. Sold in original bag and tube with Karstetter decal.
