Orvis - Limestone Special, 8'6" 2/2 6wt Impregnated Bamboo Rod

For sale here is an Orvis 8'6" 2-piece / 2-tip 6wt 'Limestone Special' in good used condition. Serial #80520, made in 1977. Medium tempered, impregnated cane. Bright guides wrapped in dark brown windings with a high bridge carbide stripping guide. Sections are full length, straight and serialized. Ferrules fit perfectly. Scripted and actual weight is 4.5oz. Strap & ring hook keeper, 6.5" cork grip (soiled and mostly smooth except for a few spots where a half-hearted cleaning attempt was performed), and down-locking aluminum reel seat over walnut spacer. Moderate signs of use and age, mostly in the grip and some corrosion to the winding check. The cane is in good shape. Action is on the medium side of medium fast, rated as a 6wt but most will prefer a 5wt line. A popular taper and a nice all-around trout rod. Sold in the original bag and tube with silver & green data label and hexagonal cap with model information.
