Lovely 10.5 feet Vintage rod, these rods have a fantastic reputation, and many would have seen Chris Yates using one in the Passion for Angling series to catch Chub. Early model with tapered handle and oval label, Label around 90 % complete, but all the important details are visible, excellently restored to original spec, with just a very slight set to the tip section. This rod is a joy to use, and would be a perfect partner to a centre pin reel targeting Roach, Perch and Chub.
An Allcocks "Lucky Strike" 3 piece split cane rod which is in superb
condition. This 10ft 6inch split cane rod is as straight as a die. The original early green Allcocks transfer/label is totally unscratched. The dark brown, green tipped, ring and intermediate silk whipping is just perfect and the varnish finish is beautiful. You can see for yourself in the photo's what a beautiful piece of vintage cane this rod is. The cane is a perfect honey colour and, all importantly, has no black water damage marks. This rod has been cherished since new !!!!! The rod has an 16 inch cork shim handle that appears unused, with aluminium butt cap and aluminium reel bands. The Butt and tip rings are un-cracked brown agate lined. Intermediate rings are of the high bell style and chromium plate finish. The ferrules are in excellent order, show no significant signs of wear, and do not "Knock". They retain the full "gun metal" finish. It comes in the original bag which bears the Allcocks label which is in fair to good condition. Guide: £225
