This is a 'Bass' weight fly rod with a moderately fast action. The grip has a very small chip out of the cork near the reel seat, visible in the first photo. All joints are the correct length and straight. There is a mid butt-joint medallion wrap, and a very nice complete South Bend decal. This rod needs no work to take it fishing immediately.
