[Cat. 2020.] FB 200060 g- I tossed this B-9 with both a Cortland Sylk DT-4F line and a Cortland Sylk DT-5F line; I preferred the DT-5 line. This rod weighs 3/8 oz. more than another 8’ B-9 I sold, and shares the same ferrule size and tip-top size. However, the additional weight in the bamboo performs better with the heavier line. All sections straight and full-length. Excellent varnish, with no nicks or scratches. The cork has been cleaned up. Near Fine-Fine. $1800 SOLD
