Barder Rod Co Chris Yates Merlin 3-piece 11' Avon rod c2007 in mint unused condition

This is a perfect example of our ever popular Avon rod in its transportable three piece format.

The hand-made split cane blank is designed so that the rod performs in the same way as its two piece counterpart.

The 24” Flor grade cork handle has a subtle onion shaped top and our own finely knurled alloy butt cap, sliding reel fittings and shoulder collar.

The butt and tip rings are Amberfins.  The intermediate stand-off rings are the very best Sapphrite Laurels hard chrome plated stainless steel.  The ferrules are our blued, waterproof splint end suction pattern with beautiful olive wood and cork stoppers.

The main whippings are Pearsall’s transparent bottle green silk.  Pearsall’s silk was traditionally preferred for sewing the linings of Savile Row suits.  The intermediate whippings are ‘old gold’ Pearsall’s Gossamer.  As you can seen from the pictures, this is a singularly tasteful and good looking rod.

This rod is incredibly versatile and will, if looked after and used sensibly, give pleasure to generations of anglers.

It has never been used and has been stored correctly for ten years.  It has a mature and therefore fully durable finish and is available for immediate delivery or collection.  The average lead time for this rod is 24 – 30 months.

Test curve: 1 pound.
Reel lines: 3 -6 pounds breaking strain.
Casting weights: up to ¾ oz.

Price: £2,000

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