Eden Cane / Bernard Ramanauskas Bamboo Fly Rod 7'6" 2/2 #4
An Eden Cane (Bernard Ramanauskas) bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #4 line. Serial #4764. The rod weighs 3.4 ounces on my scale. Very light use (perhaps only lawn cast) with just the tiniest hint of tanning to the grip. Nodeless design with scarf joints where the nodes were. Medium to slow action. Very nice varnish with clear main wraps with a tiny band of red in the middle. Agate stripper and black nickel snake guides. Brown wraps at the oxidized truncated swiss ferrules. The grip is 6" long and is a relatively flat cylinder of 1/4" corks with a thin composite cork at the front and a hidden pocket cap for an "up / down" slide band seat. Both the ring and cap are oxidized with a couple of scratches to the oxidation on the bottom of the cap. The spacer is a flatted soft maple burl with spalting lines and was mostly likely stabilized by impregnating it. The rod comes in a black cloth bag with "Freestone" embroidered on the flap. The tube is black crackle painted aluminum with brass fittings.
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.
