A Sweetgrass Mantra model quad bamboo fly rod, 7'9", 3-piece, 1-tip, and built for a #4/5 line. Serial #14-017. Made as a one-tip rod. Lightly used condition. Medium semi parabolic action. The cane is tempered to a light wheatstraw color and the node pattern is two opposed. The varnished butt shows some glue seams but they are not open and do not affect the working quality of the rod. The wraps are copper brown with black edges at the ferrules and tip tops. The mid has a slight downward set. The tip has a very few minor varnish chips. SRMC #10 carbide stripper and dark snake guides. The grip is 6" long and lightly sculpted to a full wells profile. The downlocking screwlock is black anodized aluminum with opposed pocket caps. The spacer is varnished koa. The rod bag has pockets for only one tip. The rod packs into a brown painted aluminum tube with the Sweetgrass logo.
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.
