Brandin 908-3 SS HB Fly Rod 9' 3/2 #8 [SALE PENDING]
A very nice Per Brandin Model 908-3 SS HB 2/99 fly rod, 9', 3-piece, 2-tips, and built for a #8 line. Light use. 5.6 ounces with a medium-fast to fast action. Tan wraps with a black edge at the keeper, ferrules, and tip-tops. Light coat of varnish. The stripper is an agate and the guides are snake brand. The butt and mid are a spiral node pattern while the tips are done in three-up. The ferrules are a semi-truncated step ferrule and are oxidized. The rod has been used with some minor cosmetic casting cracks to the wraps and a tiny bit of brassing to the inner part of the snake guides. The grip also has a small amount of soiling. All sections are nice and straight, as if they have just left the shop. The grip is 6 3/4" long and done in a half wells profile with a hidden pocket cap for the uplocking screw lock and the wood spacer is an oiled walnut. The bottom cap on the screwlock has a delrin insert, which I presume is for accommodating the longer feet on early reels like Hardy's. The rod packs in a tan cloth bag with an aluminum tube with brass fittings and Per's data sticker affixed, as well as a handsome outer rod tube bag. This would make an excellent light salmon or steelhead rod, perfect for small to medium wets or throwing bombers, hitches, or skaters.

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.
