A lovely, mint, early 1980's rod of mine with "Aroner 7' #5 Hunt Pattern" lettered on shaft. As with all of my early works there is no die stamp on the cap and ring seat. Flawlessly varnished walnut slide band seat with a deep, rich color. Truncated swiss ferrules with collar and knurl. Rare ferrule plug design that I did many years ago. The grip is made entirely of premium "face" cork in a medium blunt cigar, 10 corks or 5" long. The wraps are "May rose" color with orange edges. Original early bag and tube. The taper for this rod is phenomenal for casters of fast actions (if you are tired of imprecise presentations or slow, unwieldy tapers, here is your answer). Pin-point accuracy and tight loops are the norm with this design, as well as the ability to turn over larger flies. An excellent little rod to see again after many years!
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.
