A nice RK Bolt bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 3-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #4 line. Serial number 1508. The rod weighs 3.3 ounces on my scale. Mint condition. Medium semi full flexing action. The cane is oven tempered just to the darker side of wheatstraw. the nodes are done in two-opposed fashion and the main wraps are medium brown with yellow edges and a red band only at the keeper wrap. The varnish is flawless. The nickel silver ferrules are overwrapped and the welts have a neat tiny "RK Bolt" roller die stamp on them. The stripper is carbide and the snake guide are chrome. The grip is 5 1/2" and shaped to a Western profile. The all cork seat is mortised with an aluminum slide band and formed pocket cap. The pocket cap is stamped "RK Bolt, Maker" and the bottom cap is nicely radiused. The rod comes with cork and brass ferrule plugs and packs into a red cloth bag. The gray frost coated large size rod tube has a gold anodized collar and top with Robert's data sheet fixed to the tube. The tube also has a blue cloth overbag.
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.
