Barder Rod Co Chris Yates Merlin 11′ 2-piece Avon-style rod.

Completed in 2007, this rod is in unused 100% as new condition.

This rod has been stored in ideal conditions and has remained unused since it was made in 2007. It is in perfect as new condition.

Our most popular Avon rod since its conception in 1991/1992, we always intended the Merlin to be the best modern interpretation of the classic Avon rod and this is a superbly elegant example, with every possible refinement present.

It is whipped throughout in our classic Merlin format of transparent Pearsall’s bottle green silk.

The rings are superb quality hard chrome plated stand-offs, with matching ‘Amberfin’ butt and tip rings. The hook keeper ring is secured with our hand forged nickel silver strap.

The 24” flor grade cork handle has a slightly elongated ‘onion’ shaped top and aircraft grade aluminium fittings throughout.

The snug fitting nickel silver ferrule has an attractive hard wood and cork stopper.

Suitable for 4 – 6 pounds breaking strain reel lines and casting weights up to 1 oz.

Test Curve: 1 pound.
