Bob Summers Fly Rod 735 7'3" 2/2 #4-5

A gorgeous R.W. Summers Model 735 7'3" 2-piece, 2-tip rod for #4/5. Serial number 7289. Mint condition, this is a medium fast semi parabolic action for a high line speed. Excellent varnish over flame tone cane. Apricot color wraps with black edges match the cane color nicely. Chrome guides and tip tops. One tip has an extra wrap band to distinguish tips. Oxidizedswiss style ferrules are shop-made by Bob. Hook keeper on the wrap flat. Carbide stripper. Blunt cigar grip, cork skeleton reel seat with a neat walnut rear cork check and walnut end cap to keep the two black anodized aluminum rings on the mortised cork seat (very nice touch with this, I must say).

Peach color rod bag with attached aluminum-and-cork ferrule plug sewn onto bag along with Bob's label. Aluminum tube with Bob's logo stamp on the top of the brass cap. A lot of these touches really show what an excellent machinist Bob is. Nice rod.

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.
