Paul Young Para 18 Bamboo Rod 9' 2/2 #8/9/10


For sale here is a Paul H. Young Parabolic 18 bamboo rod, complete with original bag and tube. The rod is in excellent+ restored condition. Bob Summers did the restoration and re-wrote the script with a gold pen to preserve the original Paul Young gold penmanship. The restoration included re-wrapping the guides and a new coat of varnish. No other repairs were made. The rod is full length with no invisible wraps. All sections are straight. Rod was originally built in 1951. Rod shows very little use post-restoration. Ferrule fit is perfect (step-down ferrules). This 9 footer is a very strong rod for 8-10 weight lines. Original cork grip is in fine shape. Comes with original fighting butt. I'll let the pictures supply the rest of the description. No issues to disclose other than the rod bag has been taped on the bottom since there are a few rips.

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.
