Payne Model 103 Fly Rod 8' 2/2 #5/6

1716


A very nice Payne Model 103 fly rod, 8', 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #5 or #6 line. Excellent original condition, with all sections full length and straight. A scarce model that you don't come across often. Medium fast dry fly action. The rod weighs 4.6 ounces on my scale. Beautiful Payne medium colored cane. Chestnut wraps with gold tipping and gold and purple tipping at the winding check and male ferrules. Oxidized ferrules. Hook keeper. 6" half wells grip with moderate soiling and a few minor scrapes here and there. Someone also appears to have slightly sanded down the edge near the top of the grip. Aluminum uplocking screwlock reel seat over a spanish cedar spacer. The locking ring has the Payne trademark stamp. The rod packs into a replacement bag and the original tube with brass fittings and about half of the label intact. A fine example of a scarce model.
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.
