Phillipson - Peerless "5", Impregnated 7'6" 2/2 5wt Bamboo Rod
For sale here is a Phillipson Peerless "5", impregnated 7'6" bamboo rod in excellent used condition. 2-piece / 2-tip configuration, with a scripted and actual weight of 3 3/4oz. The rod is all original and features medium tempered cane, bright guides wrapped in chestnut dark bronze windings and light yellow spiral tipping. All sections are full length, and the 13/64 ferrules fit perfectly. Both tips have the slightest of fishing sets, and a few of the spiral tipping wraps are beginning to fray (nothing that requires immediate attention). U-shaped hook keeper, tapered aluminum winding check & 6" tapered grip over bronzed aluminum down-locking reel seat. The only condition note is that the second guide up from the ferrule on one tip is slightly bent. Purely cosmetic, but worth noting. The action is medium fast and the rod throws a WF5 or DT5 nicely. A fun dry fly rod. sold in original bag and tube with gold makers decal.
