Sage 8100 RPL and SF Winston steelhead bamboo
Up for sale is an 8100 RPL 2 piece. The rod is in good shape. There is a line burn in front of the handle and some cosmetic scratches on the blanks. Has the original rod sock but no tube. Will be shipped in an ABS tube. This rod is priced at $175 USD plus $15 for shipping. PM for pics please.
I also have a SF era 8'9" 2/2 4.75 oz bamboo rod made by Doug Merrick with possible assistance from Gary Howells in early 1969. It is in ex+ condition. Everything is straight, correct and right with this rod including the trademark butter smooth ferrule fit. I have fished this rod with a long belly 7 and WF-8 and enjoyed both a lot. Great dry line steelhead or big trout rod in harder to find original 2/2 config without customer name on it. Comes with original tube and 3 compartment rod sock. Previous owner wrote 9'8 on the rod bag in sharpie and the tube has a sticky label with rod length and weight. Hate to sell it but got rods coming off the bench that will replace it in my line up. I'd like to get $1,350 for this rod plus actual shipping and insurance. I take PayPal and money orders.
