[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. The rod was expertly restored, and everything is suburb, except that the Serial Numbers were redone during the restoration- the original model number on the butt was retained. 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. Very Fine Restored. $950
