Up for sale is a Walton Powell Companion rod. It’s a 2 butt/3 tip rod Walt probably called “The Presidential” at the time this was made. He later built a similar series he called “The Ultimate”. All parts serial numbered 1-84-120.
The butts measure 49” and 37 1/4”. The tips are all identical and measure 49”. It’s pretty much a 7’1”/8’1” companion. Rod weighs 4.4oz with the longer butt and 3.75oz with the shorter one. Nice oil finish rod. Ferrules are Walt’s drawn NS reverse step down - size 14. I lawn cast the rod - Walt would have sold it as a 3-4-5wt.
Rod is in near mint/unused condition. Everything is straight and ferrule fit is perfect. Original tube and correct two butt companion sock. Just a superb rod here. Some of Walt’s finest work.
