Orvis Wes Jordan, 7 ft. 6 in., 5 wt., 2/2, 3 7/8 oz., rod no. 80338, circa 1977, downlocking aluminum seat over wood spacer, Orvis brown wraps, blued ferrules, bright guides, grip with typical Wes Jordan model cutouts for the thumb and hand heel, rod is marked as a 6 wt. but as is the case with most Orvis rods, it is over lined and should be a 5 wt., hook keeper, lettering on rod is "Orvis Impregnated, Wes Jordan, 7 1/2' 3 7/8 oz. HDG (6), Made for, P.A. Pinelli". With typical leather tube. Owned by one person since new, it is fresh from a seven rod estate we recently purchased where all rods were bought from the late 60's to the mid 70's but none fished with. The rods were on display in the home and the tubes it seems a bit aged from garage storage. This rod is absolutely mint as it left Orvis and shows no evidence of ever being cast. The leather case does have scuffs and is a bit dry from storage.
