Zenith Kobe 73" Split Bamboo Fishing Rod
Click thumbnails for expanded view.
This is a very nice heavy duty casting rod marked, "ZENITH KOBE GUARANTEED SPLIT BAMBOO". The person who sold is to me said that it was in storage for many years and didn't remember it every being use. As I look it over I see no marks or scratches on the finish in the area where the reel would attach. Normally some marks can be seen if the rod was use. This rod is a close to like new as any I've seen in this style. The handle appears to be made of hard maple, it's 24" long from the rubber end to the bamboo. The wood is beautiful, in fine condition. The rubber bumper on the end shows it's age as it has some hairline splits from dry storage. The rubber is still solid and firmly attached. There is a total of 4 line furules, all have their original nickel plating, and all their winding are tight with a few loose end threads here and there. The varnish is nice everywhere, I would rate it good to good+, hard, shiny, and smooth. These are very hard rods to find in this condition, don't miss out!
Note: Sometimes my camera lens makes the rod sections appear warped, they are as strait as when new.
