9 footer, throws a 5 weight DT nicely. Three piece, only 1 tip. Had Ray Gould turn the Cork handle and change out the first guide for a larger, real red agate stripper guide about two years ago. Bamboo is honey colored. Original writing, red original bag. Found an old-school South Bend tube to keep it in. This rod is Circa 1940's and was made just after W and M took over Granger. Paid $250 + $100 in upgrades. Make me an offer/trade. Love the rod, but it seems I always reach for the graphite. Thanks.
