He worked with some of the best rod designers in the country to develop his glass rods. He realized that certain subtleties in action and the timeless beauty inherent in cane can never be duplicated in glass, but glass had advantages. He designed his rod tapers to stress the superior points of glass. This is a final generation Claudio, considered the best-casting Claudio by many aficionados. Ferd Claudio made rods in both an “A” action or a “B” action. The “A” was a faster dry fly action, while the “B” was a more progressive action. His 8’6” rod for a DT-5 in the “A” taper is one of his more scarce models. The paper label on the tube is nearly pristine. Grip moderately soiled. Aside from grip, Near Fine. $875
