Classic precision dominates the unsanded graphite blank with matching graphite wraps of the Superfine Carbon. Delicate presentation and subtle feel for the ultimate in a small-stream rod. With details like a winding check, full flex, silver snake guides and hardware, up-locking cork and polished silver reel seat, and super-grade cork handle, you'll find modern construction has resulted in added strength and smoother casting. Aluminum rod tube, rod sock and 25-year guarantee.
The 8-foot six-inch 5-weight rod is the rod most of us caught our first fish on. It's the beginner's classic; the one rod you want in the quiver at all times. Strength and precision come together in this full-flex model, ideal for the novice or the seasoned fisherman. With the backbone to fish breezy conditions and larger waters but the softness and delicacy of presentation that the most demanding fish demand, the 865-4 Carbon is a classic in the making. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont.
