The Kennet Perfection 11'4" 2-piece + detachable handle split cane coarse fishing rod made by the E. Barder Rod Co in 1993

This rod is in 98% of new condition and has been used once by its previous owner.  It has been stored correctly and is a super example of this very versatile rod.  The split cane middle and tip are perfectly straight and made from light honey coloured bamboo. The snug fitting ferrules are waterproof splint end suction type by Beatsons of Sheffield, and retain their attractive hardwood and cork stoppers.

The rings are hard chromed stainless steel bridge pattern, with an 'Amberfin' tip ring.  There are more than enough rings to facilitate float fishing, but they are of a type that is also suitable for ledgering, making this a very versatile rod indeed.  All whippings are Burgundy silk with fine double tippings in the style popularised by Pezon et Michel of Amboise.  A hook keeper ring is fitted.  The varnish finish is flawless.

The detachable cork and split cane handle has alloy sliding reel bands and a tapered alloy butt cap fitted with a red rubber button.  The rod comes in its original beige cotton tailor made bag, with press stud fastenings and a pocket in the flap for the ferrule stoppers.  

This is a super example of this wonderfully versatile and durable model, which has such useful length, limber action and comfortable handling qualities.  It was built to the correct and original Southwell/Oliver's dimensions.

For reel lines of 4 - 6 pounds breaking strain.
Casting weights up to an ounce and a quarter.
Test Curve: one and a quarter pounds.

Price: £1,500
