The following rods are available for purchase (unless noted otherwise in the description). The rods are listed by length first, then alphabetically by maker. A sale pending tag denotes that an agreement to purchase the item has been reached, but the sale may not yet have been completed.

Phillipson Uniglas Model 8F66LC ~ 6.5’ ~ 2 pc. ~ 2 ˝ oz. ~ #5. EXC+/As New ~ This Series 800 Johnson “Profile” classic was constructed with the longitudinal Uniglas fiber designed by 3M and introcuded in the mid 1960s. It features attractive light brown blanks, brown silks and accent wraps, champagne-colored mildrum stripper, Aetna foul-proof snakes, and smooth and tight-fitting N/S ferrules that give a nice pop when separated. The business end of the butt section is fitted with a comfortable light cigar grip that continues down to form the cork grip, champagne-colored D/L’ing cap and ring hardware, wound over WC and champagne-colored HK. The set comes with the original turquoise-blue bag and Phillipson-labeled tube. Although rated for a #5, a Cortland 444 Peach WF-4 is a perfect match for this wand, but it will easily handle a 5 if called upon to do so. This rod, in barely…if at all… used condition is a super find for the Phillipson aficionado and/or any glass rod enthusiast. $295

SOLD Fenwick Model FF70 ~ 7’ ~ 2pc. ~ 3oz. ~ 5-6wt. ~ Serial No. I 63918 ~ EXC ~ This sweet casting glass rod from Fenwick features a brown blank, brown wraps tipped white and the patented feralite ferrule system. It comes with a plaid bag and Fenwick-labeled aluminum tube that are both thought to be original. The rod has a crisp medium action and although rated by the AFTMA as a No.5-6, I liked it better with a Cortland 444 Peach DT 4- and WF-5 line. These Feralite models are among the best values out there in classic glass and a popular choice for the Fenwick enthusiast.

Phillipson Royal Model RF76 ~ 7.5’ ~ 2 pc. ~ 3 ˝ oz. ~ HDH-HCF #6. EXC+ ~ This Rocky Mountain classic features brown blanks, burgundy silks with light brown accent wraps, mildrum stripper, Aetna foul-proof snakes, and smooth and tight-fitting N/S ferrules that give a nice pop when separated. The business end of the butt section is fitted with a comfortable straight grip with tapered nose, bronze-brown D/L’ing screw and slide hood ‘no rock’ aluminum seat, cone-shaped WC, and HK loop. The set comes with the original bag and Phillipson-labeled tube. I found the rod has an affinity for a Cortland 444 Peach DT-5, but will easily handle a 6 if called upon to do so. This is a really nice find for the Phillipson aficionado and/or any glass rod enthusiast. $250

SOLD Fenwick Model FF80 ~ 8’ ~ 2pc. ~ 3.5oz. ~ 5-6wt. ~ Serial No. D 43102 ~ EXC ~ This sweet casting glass rod from Fenwick features a brown blank, brown wraps tipped white and the patented feralite ferrule system. It comes with a Fenwick-labeled plaid bag and Fenwick-labeled aluminum tube. The bag is thought to be original. The tube isn’t. The rod has a comfortable medium action that throws a fine loop when paired with a Cortland 444 Peach DT-5 and/or WF-6 line. These Feralite models are among the best values out there in classic glass and a popular choice for the Fenwick enthusiast.

Fenwick Model FF858 ~ 8.5’ ~ 2pc. ~ 4 1/8oz. ~ 8wt. ~ Serial No. L 135398 ~ EXC- ~ This sweet casting glass rod from Fenwick features a brown blank, brown wraps tipped white and the patented feralite ferrule system. It comes with a plaid bag and Fenwick-labeled aluminum tube. The bag is thought to be original. The tube isn’t. The rod has a comfortable medium action that and is a real powerhouse. Although it’ rated by the AFTMA for a No. 8 line, liked it best when paired with a Cortland 444 Peach WF-7 line. These Feralite models are among the best values out there in classic glass and a popular choice for the Fenwick enthusiast. $125
