Default Goodwin Granger Champion 8642

Up for sale is a Goodwin Granger Champion 8642 3/1... I'll let the pictures do most of the talking as my knowledge of the rod is limited to what I've learned about it on FFR. Pre WWII made rod. One of the best tapers ever made. Slide band reel seat. Ferrules make a nice pop when pulled apart. Cork has some ridging. All components are original and the finish is in great shape... Possibly refurbished. All pieces are equal in length. Comes with what appears to be original sock and non original aluminum tube.

$220 + shipping + insurance. PP preferred. Conus. SOLD.

Will include Shakespeare Russell 1897 at no additional cost as it was given to me on another forum at no cost. Will come loaded with H&H DT5F.(not the line shown)

Rod and reel will ship separately. I'll cover shipping costs on the reel.

It is very nice. Sweet casting rod. I felt like I was a conductor of a symphony orchestra with the elegant casting this rod demands. Just not really a rod I find a use for often. It was nice to play with and now it's time to pass it on to a more serious owner.
