The Hexagraph rod design concept was originated in England in the 1970’s by Bruce & Walker and popularized in the US by pioneer rod maker, Walton Powell. It was continued for many years by Harry J. Briscoe, who has since retired the Company. These rods do indeed cast much like bamboo does. They are as close in action to cane as anyone seems to have ever come in graphite. This original rod is fitted with trouble free, Spigot-style ferrules, a Half-Wells style grip, a lovely Walnut filled reverse N/S S/L reel seat. These rods are made from six-strips of tapered graphite laminated to inert foam, tapered and final glued into a six-sided Graphite fly rod, just as is bamboo construction. Inked for a #5 line, it performed satisfyingly well for me with a Triangle Taper Plus 5 line. Appears very lightly fished and in Excellent Plus condition. A sweet-as-can-be, light-line trout rod. Long, but not sloppy, it is a very pleasant rod to cast. Great for spring creek fishing. Comes in the original heavy velour rod bag only, No case. Very collectible and very fishable.
