[Cat. 2019] FB 190194 gqw – This rod casts a DT-6F line very well. It was made in 1982 after Tom Maxwell left Leonard in late 1979. I thought the rod had been restored, because the Model Numbers and the Serial Numbers were not written by the same person. I later talked to some Leonard experts who thought that the writing could have been done by different people. The cork grip shows very little use. This rod has a stiff butt with most of the flex in the tip, which should provide delicate presentations. The ferrules seat fully and are tight. All sections are full length and straight.
