Edwards Quadrate Bamboo Fly Rod 8' 2/2 #6 [SALE PENDING]

1278

A nice Edwards Quadrate fly rod, 8', 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #6. Brisk dry fly action. #43. 4.7 ounces. Good condition, original, straight, and with tight ferrules. The wraps appear original but with a few small chips in the varnish of the butt. The tips are fine. The main wraps are brown with yellow and black edges fore and aft at the keeper, ferrules, and tip-tops. Flamed cane with very good varnish with the exception of the chips in the butt. Agate stripper with high arch snake guides. The step ferrules are oxidized with 100% of the original oxidation. The grip is 6" long, squared at the front to the 1/2" long grip check and done in a western profile. A hidden pocket cap of Bakelite adds 1/2" to the heel of the grip. The reel seat is a flatted polished form of narrow bands of plywood with the threads for the uplock nut cut directly into it. A small black knob of bakelite or tenite holds the nut on, which is of the same material. The brown poplin bag has a neat "Edwards Quadrate" logo printed on it. The original aluminum tube has a brass collar and aluminum top and Edwards data sticker which is about 50% intact on the tube.

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.
Other Terms
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.
