Grip is moderately soiled; all sections straight & full length; ferrules fit tightly; bluing on ferrules shows some nicks. Prior owner had installed measure marks at 10”, 15”, & 18” on the same section where a partially-obscured “Orvis Impregnated” is written. I cast this rod with a DT-5; it performed well, but many people might prefer a WF-6 line. Very Good. $425
