C. W. Sam Carlson

8', 2/1 Thomas "Four", '71 dem. 482. Weighing 4.6 oz. on our digital scale. Line weight 5/6. Half wells cork grip. Down-sliding cap and ring over cork insert. Burgundy thread wraps. Blued nickel silver ferrules. In a recent conversation with Dana Gray, he researched Sam's records and found the following information: The number 395 on the tip indicates it was beveled and glued in July of 1971 out of old dark strips. The butt number 454 was made in August of 1971. The initials F.H.G. are perhaps indicative of Franklin Hide Glue, which Sam usually used to glue up his test sections after the beveller was set. We do not know what the initials TC stand for. This unique rod comes in an original bag and a Fenwick aluminum tube. The rod is in excellent condition.

Price: $2,195.00
