Winston - Pre-IM6 9'6" 6wt 2-piece Graphite Fly Rod
For sale here is a Winston original graphite (pre-IM6) fly rod. Very low serial number (#3605), 9'6" 6 weight, two-piece rod in very good used condition. Constructed of ultra low modulus graphite, the action is very slow (for a carbon rod) and buttery smooth. Full wells cork grip is slightly soiled but smooth. Black anodized down-locking reel seat over fine wood spacer. The spigot ferrule has approximately 1/4" gap to allow for wear over time. This is a very nice early example of Winston's original graphite in a desirable length, though unfortunately the bag and tube are missing.
