EC Powell Fly Rod 9' 3/2 #6


An EC Powell semi-hollow built fly rod, 9', 3-Piece, 2-tip, built for what feels to me like a #6 line. Weighs 4.6 ounces on my scale. Patent date lettered on the butt shaft. 2-opposed node construction with honey colored cane. Good varnish overall. Standard brown Powell wraps with intermediates and the cream and black tipping on the lowermost wraps at the grip. The wraps are in good condition overall with mild cracking on a few of the ferrule wraps but nothing concerning. One tip-top wrap is fraying slightly at the top but would be easily remedied. The other tip has a small seam opening in the lower portion but it does not appear to be a structural issue. Agate stripping guide. The ferrules fit together nicely and the rod is nice and straight. Medium action in what I suspect is a B taper. The grip has moderate soiling and a small amount of ridging here and there. Standard Powell grip profile. Bakelite reel seat with aluminum uplocking seat with the Powell stamp. Comes in a light tan bag and aluminum tube with a brass tube top (the collar has a split but it is not loose at all) and bottom. A nice overall rod here, perfect for larger trout or light steelhead work.

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.
