For sale is a fantastic rod from Press' Powell Rod Company - a 2 piece 9' 6" LTSH (Light Steelhead) 7-8wt rod. This rod is in outstanding condition...it has one cosmetic scuff near the second stripping guide - otherwise it is blemish free. The reel seat and grip look as though the've never been out of the tube. And it has the original removable fighting butt. It has the anodized "long barrel" reel seat (for bigger reels) which would make this a great salt water rod too. The sensitive feel of the signature series rods make them great for hooking steelhead - and the strength comes in handy once you've got a fish on. And the size and back bone of it would make it ideal for still water Bass or Stripers in the Delta as well. Comes in original tube and sock. The rod tube is not in great shape. It has some tape residue, the bottom cap is tight but has some cracks, and the screw on top is missing. The serial number dates the rod to 1987 which is fairly early in the Powell Rod Company produciton period. Sold.
