FB 180177. 8’0” OGDEN SMITH “WARRIOR: 2/2 [Both tips down ½ in as made.] 4 ¾ oz. #6 line. 5.5/64” tip; 14/64” mid; D/L alum screw lock over cork; Marked: “The / Warrior/ Rod / Ogden Smith / London, England / 537.” Cigar grip; Alum. Grip check; flap-ring hook keeper; Marked above grip: “8’ / Sxxx Txxxx / The Warrior Rod / Double Built / Made by Ogden Smith Ltd. / London, England.” Wraps translucent pale tan silk with full intermediates & green trim on bronze snakes, Agate stripper & Agate Tip Top; Blued N/S ferrules; Ferrule protector; in Factory cloth bag & Alum. Tube. [Cat. 2018] FB 180177 m. – I tossed this rod with a DT-6, and it handed it well for a British rod. The middle of the tip has a lots of bamboo in it, so it was hard to throw a tight loop. One problem that might concern some anglers is that the Agate tip guide is very small, and a doubled fly line [it was a .034 in. tip] could not be put through it. A new tip top would solve this. All sections straight & full length; ferrules fit fine. Grip lightly soiled. Near Fine. $195
