This is an HL Leonard bamboo from the mid sixties. It is a 7 1/2 foot 5/6 weight and has the original tube and sock. This rod has certainly been fished, but it has a great patina, the guides and wraps are in very good shape, and it is a solid 7 out of 10. In my own collection, this has been the rod that I have reached for most often when I wanted to fish cane, but wanted to use a rod that was not overly fancy. The rod casts and fishes great, and is the perfect workingmans thoroughbred bamboo.
