RUSS PEAK ZENITH 8’ FIBERGLASS FLY ROD

This is an 8’ 2-piece Zenith with an original second tip.  Serial number is 12557. The glass is very dark, and the writing is in black, so the inscription is barely legible.  With the aid of an illuminated 10x:  “Russ Peak ‘Zenith’ #12557   3 7/8oz / Created for [original owner].”  The line weight is not marked on the rod or the tube, but it feels like a 5/6wt. to me.  Rod features down-locking gold anodized reel seat over dark hardwood, 6 5/8” cork grip, wire loop hook keeper, Mildrum stripper, bright snakes, NS ferrules with female over-wrapped, original bag and tube.  According to Victor Johnson’s book on fiberglass fly rods, and other sources, the Peak rods with two tips offered different casting characteristics with each tip.  Russ Peak is widely recognized as one of the three top fiberglass rod builders.  His rods are a treat to cast with a comfortable feel, good accuracy, and plenty of punch.
