I am not sure about 'original specification' but I bought a pair for my Mk IV Avon last year from Anglers Supplies in Cardiff.
Photos sent to you by PM. (I can't find out how to send them on this reply).
Their website is www.anglerssupplies.co.uk This will take you to their section of E-bay.
Even better is to telephone them as they often have items available which are not on the website. Tel: 029 2022 0723 Ask for Tony.
N.B. Their ferrule sizes are the inside of the MALE. Double check with Tony.

That's really helpful Old Angler and thanks for the photos . I have bought ferrules from this supplier before . Ideally I was after an exact replacement to keep the rod original , however a bit of googling has not produced any results so I will probably have to go for something approximately the same . I will get in touch with them

Quite a few years back now when I was looking for a quality ferrule, the only people who could fulfil my need was Olivers of Knebworth, they were not cheap but the quality was absolutely superb. If they are still going may be someone on here has their details for you.

I can vouch for the quality of Ted’s ferrules if they have any left.

Hi,
Have a look at:
viewtopic.php?f=374&t=30979

This is for Olivers Rods - he fitted new ferrules to my MkIV Avon a few years back and they were exactly like the originals and he may supply them for you to fit.

Good luck,
Dok
