EC Powell Bamboo Rod 9'6" 3/1 #6


An EC Powell semi-hollow fly rod, 9'6", 3-piece, 1-tip, built for what feels to me like a #6 line. Weighs 5.7 ounces on my scale. 2-opposed node construction with honey colored cane. Patent number #1932986 inked on the butt section along with the original owner's name. Darker, gold-colored wraps with standard single intermediate wraps throughout, and the wrap just above the grip having a lighter gold and black tipping. Medium, full-flexing action. Polished bright ferrules. The tip has a slight downstream set but the butt and mid are nice and straight. This rod likely had delamination issues, evidenced by the 4 1/2" clear wrap along the butt, and a longer almost 15" clear wrap along the middle portion of the mid. It appears to have been refinished after the clear wraps were added. Standard Powell-style grip with the bakelite reel seat spacer and uplocking aluminum hardware with the EC Powell stamp on it. Comes in a SF-era Winston rod bag and aluminum tube (the cap is missing and a temporary plastic tube cap has been added). A nice fisher here for folks who want a long, light single-hander for large trout or light steelhead.

Shipping Information
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.
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.
