A beautiful Chris Carlin hex bamboo rod, Model LL8643. The rod is in superb condition as it has only been lightly used a few times, medium flamed cane, dark olive wraps with black tips, black wraps at the ferrules and winding check. 3-up node pattern, blued hardware throughout. jade agate stripping guide, full-wells grip with a stunning reel seat, blued nickel silver cap and ring with knurled edges. The spacer is a highly figured burlwood with cork inlay in the mortised cavity. The action is medium-fast and quite authoritative for a #4. The extra length on this rod makes it very handy, allowing for casts and drifts not possible with a shorter rod – an excellent trout rod. Comes with original light canvas bag and brown tube with label and brass fittings.
