I built this Spring Creek to have a sweet, medium action, and also gave it a somewhat unique configuration. Mortised all cork seat with a cap and ring, with a coin-edge knurl and rear cork check. Medium cigar grip. Lovely pot-belly ferrules with 100% of the oxidation intact. Brass and cork ferrule plugs. Rod shafts are wrapped green olive with brown olive intermediates. Fine tips and small hoop tip-tops round out this beauty. Very little use is evidenced, with only a tiny amount of hand discoloration on the grip and the faintest hint of "bag wear̢" and brassing on the agate stripping guide. This rod also comes with an unusual brass top and collar (photo below) that I made while experimenting with a new style and design. This rod would be a great addition to any collection or as your new go-to rod for that favorite small stream.
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
