Chris Yates Merlin 11' 2-piece Avon rod in new unused condition  c2003

This rod has been stored in ideal conditions and has remained unused since it was made in 2003.  It is in perfect new condition.

Our most popular Avon rod since its conception in 2001/2002.  We always intended the Merlin to be the best modern interpretation of the classic Avon rod and this is a superbly elegant example, with every possible refinement present.

Whipped in our original Merlin format - transparent natural silk ring, handle top and hook keeper whippings, tipped in super-fine tan silk.  The ferrule splints are whipped with translucent tan silk - see our website fly rod illustrations for a clear view of this silk colour scheme.

The rings are superb quality hard chrome plated stand-offs, with matching 'Amberfin' butt and tip rings.  The hook keeper ring is secured with our hand forged nickel silver strap.

The 24" flor grade cork handle has a slightly elongated 'onion' shaped top and nickel sliver fittings throughout.

The snug fitting nickel silver ferrule has an attractive hard wood and cork stopper.

Suitable for 4 - 6 pounds breaking strain reel lines and casting weights up to 1 oz.

Test Curve: 1 pound.

Price: £1,850

All pre-owned rods supplied by us are now issued with a specially printed and individually signed and dated certificate of ownership.
