Paul Young Para 17 Bamboo Rod 8'6" 2/2 #8/9


For sale here is a Paul H. Young Parabolic 17 bamboo rod, complete with original bag and tube. The rod is in excellent+ condition. The rod is full length and straight. Serial #4245 built by Bob Summers. This rod appeared in Marty Keane's 1990 catalog and was priced at $1800. Ferrule fit is perfect. This 8 1/2 footer is a very strong rod suited best for an 8 or 9 weight line. Wells grip is in fine shape. Also comes with a fighting butt. Rod weighs 5 1/2 oz. I'll let the pictures supply the rest of the description. There is a small spot on the butt where the varnish has chipped away (see last photo), but other than that, this rod is almost flawless. This can be rubbed out easily but I'll leave it up to the next owner to do so.

Shipping Information

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.
