A very nice Gary Howells fly rod, 8', 2-piece, 2-tips, built for a #5 line. 3.8 ounces. Medium to slowish action. Serial #5128. Very light use with the faint hint of cosmetic casting cracks at the ferrules and the varnish on the chrome guides is worn at the inner part of the guide, but that's about it. Brown wraps, yellow edges, extra band of maroon and yellow at the keeper. The ferrule fits are good and all sections are straight. The varnish is superbly done, first class work, and is in excellent condition. The 6" long cork grip is styled to a western profile with a hidden pocket cap. The reel seat is an aluminum uplocking style and the spacer is perfectly varnished zebra wood. Packs into a maroon cloth bag and aluminum rod tube with the Howells data sticker 100% 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.
