Ron Kusse Fly Rod 5' 1/1 #3/4


A fine Ron Kusse 5' one piece fly rod, built for a #3/4 line. Serial #9200. Fast action. Near mint condition. The only signs of use are some faint brassing to the inner snake guides, some slight reel foot and slide band impressions on the walnut reel seat, and a small scrape on the butt cap oxidation. Flamed cane with a three-up node pattern. The wraps are a light brown with five extra bands, maroon, black, brown, yellow, and maroon at the keeper wrap. The varnish is first-rate, just flawless. The grip and slide band seat are one piece of walnut turned to a slim cigar and varnished. The cap and ring are oxidized and the cap is stamped "Ron Kusse, Maker" in a cartouche. A tan cloth bag and hang tag comes with the rod. The hangtag states the weight of the rod as 1.5 oz. but my scale has it at 2.5 oz. The rod is packed in a frost coat aluminum tube with a brass top and bottom. 

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.
