Edwards – Quadrate Model #50, 8' 0"

  • For your consideration is an Edwards Quadrate, Registered Model #50. A respected Edwards collector told me Registered models were custom ordered. I've also heard Edwards was just experimenting with his naming. Either way, this 8’ 0” 3/2 5wt or 6wt rod is exceptional.

    Dark flame-tempered cane with deep crimson silks and black tipping. The distinguishing script remains in place. Squared tenite winding check blends masterfully with the squared upper part of the grip which measures 6” in length. Some slight ridging. The up-locking reel seat is made entirely of tenite. The butt cap shows normal wear from being stood upright. The blued ferrules are size 12 and 16 with a perfect fit and resounding pop. This rod was beautifully refinished by Tim Zietek. The rod weighs 5.0 oz. In my hand the action is medium-fast.
