D. Slater of Newark, England named mahogany combination starback reel and D Slater 10’ 2 piece greenheart boat rod. They came as a pair so shame to split them up. A 3 ½” mahogany Patent combination reel with good ebonite rear drum flange, brass annular line guide, Starback stamped “D. Slater’s Patent 3409”. The foot has been removed and this came semi-permanently fitted to the rod which we have freed off. The rod brass butt cap is stamped “D. Slater Maker, Newark” and is fitted with unusual brass roller heavy duty guides. The green whips are frayed, the bronze ferrule is split yet the rod has the bones of making a good restoration piece, not seen another like it, great items for the Slater collector or book author!
