No. 1932986” in ink on shaft by the hook keeper; one intermediate wrap between each guide; 8 intermediates between butt & first guide. 2-up node staggering. Book matched tips. In original bag & brass-capped alum. tube. Circa 1940’s-1950’s. [Cat. 2020.] FB 200055 h.- I tossed this rod with a Sylk DT-5F and a DT-6F. It was better with the #6. Typical smooth casting with the B-9 taper, requiring very little effort on the part of the caster. A wonderful rod to fish. This rod had the original small ring hook keeper used before WW-II and after. The bamboo shafts are more heavily flamed than the lighter tones of the Maslan era. The keeper and the Patent No. was carefully preserved prior to the restoration. The restoration was not done at the Powell factory. The restorer put an extra coating on the guide wraps themselves and all the intermediate wraps. The grip has a new cork added next to the hook keeper, and been cleaned up with some moderate ridging. The front of the new cork does not have the typical contours of a Powell grip. With grip repair, noted short tip, & restorations, About Very Good. $950
