Early Chapmans 550 Carp rod 10′ – restored by Paul Cook – £ 200.00 – Sold Out
Chapmans rods have rightly got a bit of a reputation in recent years for the quality of their build. The 550 offered here is their 2 piece + detachable handle carp rod, 1.5lb test curve, with open bridge guides (agate lined tip and butt), brass push in ferrules and 28″ detachable cork handle. This is an early 550 with green whipping including copper wire on the lower butt eye leg and ferrules. Fitted rod bag (unnamed as is often the case with early versions of this rod). Further specifications etc. on the rod can be seen on the Chapmans site here: http://www.chapmanblanks.co.uk/wordpress/?page_id=382
Recently restored by Paul Cook this rod is in fabulous condition with his characteristic high gloss varnish finish.
