FB 200213ho. –This 1946 Lew Stoner rod can really belt out a steelhead line. I cast a DT-8F 444 Peach line on it, and it didn’t really sweat until I had over 50 ft. of line out. It is a suburb steelhead rod, and fine example of Lew Stoner’s rod work. Both sections straight and full length. Grip moderately spoiled; varnish excellent. Prior owner had removed a name above the inked Winston inscription. This is a collector-quality Stoner Winston, showing fine casting qualities & workmanship. Near Fine. $1200 SOLD
