Used Winston pre-IM6 905-2pc
For sale here is an early pre-IM6 Winston graphite rod with gold cup label (serial number 1711). 9 feet, 2-piece rod for a 5 wt line, with a garrison style down-locking reel seat. It is in fair condition with signs of wear on the blank, this rod also has some additional wraps on the blank that appear to have been done professionally and possibly even done by Winston given the thread color match, see pictures. There are 4 wraps that appear like intermediate wraps see one of these wraps in the photo of the previously mentioned "additional wraps". The wraps do not appear to affect the function of this rod. It comes with original bag and tube, the Winston label is on the tube but label with rod information is missing. This about as classic a graphite rod as there is.
