Karstetter, Marty - 8'3" 2/2 4wt Hollow Built Bamboo Fly Rod
For sale here is an 8'3" 2-piece / 2-tip 4wt hollow built bamboo rod made by Marty Karstetter. Serial #22315, excellent+ used condition. Featuring medium tempered cane with 2x2 nodes, snake guides and agate stripper wrapped in transparent toffee colored windings and chestnut accents. Truncated Swiss ferrules are blued and the fit is perfect. All sections are straight and full length. 6" grip with cap & ring reel seat over a nicely figured walnut spacer. The butt cap reads "Marty Karstetter - Maker", and has some light bluing loss at the edges. A very well cared for rod with little signs of use. 3.5oz scripted and actual weight. Fast/medium fast dry fly action, it casts a DT4 well although I suspect it would handle a 5wt also. Sold in original bag and tube with Karstetter decal.
