Tube; Tube marked: “Orvis/ Madison / Serial No: 76651 / Length: 7 ½’ / Weight: 4 oz. / For: HCF (7).” [Cat. 2019] FB 190113 jrx. –This 1975 rod was sent back to Orvis after one tip was broke at 3 ½ in .from the tip top. A new tip top was set on the short tip, and a guide was replaced on the butt. The thread wrap was a darker shade of brown compared to the original wraps. Grip is moderately soiled; aside from short tip, all sections straight & full length; ferrules fit tightly; bluing on ferrules shows some nicks. I cast this rod with a DT-6; it performed well, but many people might prefer a WF-7 line. With noted faults, Very Good. $495
