description: Wonderful rod from the last days of the Wisnton Bamboo Shop. This is a one of a kind prototype and I'm pretty sure the only 8ft 4wt they built with the production date being the serial number 082604. The extra tip with built by Glenn at a later date as most pentas were 1 tip rods. Everything is pretty much standard Winston with the exception of the two tone wood winding check. (Nice Touch). I have test cast this rod and it seem to cast very well with a dt4 Rio Selective Trout. The rod is mint and has a bit of soiling to the wells grip. Also one tip top was mad a bit larger than the other. Not sure why but the wrap are off a bit at the ferrules. The only thing I can say is that the rod is a prototype and one tip was made by Jerry and the other by Glenn. So this could be the reason for that. This would be a great all around med. fast dry fly rod.
