wasn't actually looking for one, but it popped up in my ebay notifications. For $10 I could not resist..
Just like every other Phillipson I've cast, it is surprisingly light and modern in feel, a pleasure to cast and fish.
No fish today, extending the streak of skunks to 5, but a good time playing with my new toy anyway.
Need to try a couple of other reels on it, for now the Zebco PS2 makes for a very lightweight outfit.
the lure here is a desperation play, a bit of scented plastic that looks and smells like a worm. Still no go. The line guides fit into the minimalist aesthetic of the whole rod, with its wraps that disappear into the glass, short cork handle and that perfect Phillipson reel seat.
