Old Orvis Salmon rod (2 hander)

I have an old (1979) Orvis two hander that has never been fished. 13ft6in 10wt is what the tube says. Its as new as a 30 year old rod could be. Appears to be the old Boron/Graphite mix. Pics available.

Wall hanger or everyday fisher for the vintage guy, $190.00 shipped and paypaled in the lower 48, outside, actual cost.

Found another Enfield SMLE I need some cash for, so not interested in trades.

You don't want it, that nail always gets ingrown. I may spare the little one, would make your foot look strange, but what are you offering?

Nice Rod

Have you ever cast it? Wondering what lines it might like.. Wouldn't surprise me if it was something lighter than modern 10wt class.
