Tube and label is in excellent condition. Built with one tip (see label). Sock has a slight tear from a ferrule poke through (see photo 3).I purchased this two years ago from someone that had not fished it since 1976. The ferrule had a slight tick - fit was a little loose. I sent it to Orvis and Charlie Hisey recommended replacing the ferrules. Except for the Orvis factory replaced ferrules, this is 100% original. A fun rod to fish with a progressive taper. Wes Jordan developed this taper in the early/mid 60's in response to William Mills & Son wanting a short, light weight fly rod.
