Aroner 6'9" 3/2 #5 Spring Creek

A rare 6'9" #5 3pc 2-tip Spring Creek which has been lawn cast only. The varnish is in flawless condition and there is no sign of wear or use at the ferrules or guides. Fast dry fly action. This is a very unusual model of mine, in fact the only one I believe that I have ever made in this configuration. It is wrapped in olive with red tipping, and there is a black edge on the keeper wrap and one of the tip-tops (to distinguish the tips from one another). The tips are mirrored in my usual fashion. The reel seat is also rare for this rod -- a slide band with black anodized acorn and pocket cap over cork barrel -- which is the same seat featured on the first run of my limited edition "Spinoza" models. Ferrules are my standard swiss with brass ferrule plugs. This rod is also finished out with Perfection black high-speed Steel guides and a rare and most beautiful Perfection stripper (not made for the past 50 yrs.). Comes with my bag and standard polished brass-topped tube. You can click on the photos to the left to see more detail.

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.
