Jenkins Rod Co. Model GA70L Bamboo Rod 7' 2/2 #3/4
For sale here is a Jenkins Model GA70L bamboo rod from the bench of Charlie & Steve Jenkins. 7 feet in length, two sections with two tips, for a 3 or 4 weight line. The rod appears to have never been fished, only lawn cast. Lightly mottle-flamed cane, 3 X 3 node spacing. The rod features caramel colored wraps and oxidized hardware. Garrison-style hook keeper as well as grip. Sculpted nickel silver checks. Cap and ring reel seat with fine mortised wood spacer. Oxidized Swiss style ferrules size 11/64, the fit is excellent. The rod weighs 3 1/4 oz. and has a very smooth medium fast dry fly action. It's ideally suited for use with a DT3 line. If fishing within 25 feet or so, the rod would load a 4wt line nicely. Includes original green canvas bag and labeled aluminum tube.
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.
