Dickerson 7612, 7½ ft. 2pc/1 tip project rod
Dickerson 7612, 7½ ft. 2pc/1 tip project rod. This rod would make a perfect project for someone wanting to restore a desirable shorter model from this great maker. One tip is broken as shown in the photos and would be a good candidate for a splice repair, while the other full length tip has a short repair wrap below the first snake guide below the tip top, also seen in a detailed photo. Cork shows ridging and roughness from age. A wrap at the stripping guide also needs attention where the original wrap has cracked and separated (I could do this repair before shipping if desired). This rod certainly deserves the restoration. Action is fast; I would say for a DT5 line. In original bag and tube (dented with a slight bend) from the collection of Thomas H. Clark.
