FEATURES

The 1947 Catalog states that “Only the most exacting standards are used in making these handsome rods.” Only A-Grade cane split from the same culm was used to create these fine rods.

The Premier’s windings are simple and utilitarian—single wraps of gold silk.

Tip-top guides were chromium plated in all years that the Premier was offered, however only the crossover rods also had chromium line guides and butt guides.
