Tube. [Cat. 2018] FB 180176 jsx. - This is an obvious unmarked ORVIS rod sold by the Bamboo Rod in Weston VT in 1980, according to the invoice. The rod looks unfished, but something happened to one tip, so it was crudely wrapped. The tip is still fishable, though it is hard to see what happened to it. This 3 piece Orvis is a wonderful caster, as are many 3 pc. Orvis bamboo rods. It throws a DT-6 with complete control at all normal fishing distances. All sections straight & full length. Aside from repaired tip, Near New. $450
