A nice EC Powell bamboo fly rod, 9', 3-piece, 2-tip, and built for what feels to me like #6 or #7. Medium full flexing action. The rod weighs 4.9 ounces. It is straight overall and the ferrule fits are good (though one of the tips has a very slight outward sweep to it from the ferrule being mounted slightly offcenter). No inscription on the butt section. Light wheatstraw colored cane and the butt and mid are done in the typical two opposed node construction while the tips have a random spiralish-pattern. There are a fair number of minor glue lines and seams in the cane here and there though nothing open or posing any structural issue that I could see. Very light coat of varnish. The wrap colors are a slightly more tannish color brown than what I typically find on Powell rods and have the usual intermediates. Agate stripping guide. Heavily sculpted Powell grip which is 6 1/4" in length. Bright aluminum downlocking screwlock seat with a pocket in the end cap over the typical bakelite spacer. The seat has the circular Powell stamp. The rod packs into a light linen drawstring bag and the original Powell tube with the green sticker 85% intact.
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.
