816 Ocean City Cradle with Montague rod

Post by 54bullseye »

Here is a little more Big Game stuff !! This is a really nice 16/0 # 816 Ocean City cradle with a beautiful 725 Montague tip. The tip is in the original shipping box from Ocean City which is neat it also has the original rod sock with it. The reel looks pretty much new or at least meticulously cared for. The reel also came with the carry / fighting handle. I was lucky to find this combo in such beautiful original condition and it sits in my fishing reel area with only me admiring it so here it is !!
A bit of Ocean City eye candy ! Thanks for looking John Taylor

Nice John! Almost looks familiar wink/wink! Great box...by any chance is there a date on it. Just curious about the tip...recently picked up a pair with early unmarked Tycoon tips. Good stuff for sure!
