For sale here is a rod you won't find on the resale market very often, an early 7'6 4-5wt quad made by the late Sam Carlson. Simply inked "Carlson" like he did on his early rods prior to "Thomas Carlson", "Thomas Four", and then "Carlson Four". This rod was apparently made in the late 1950s before Carlson started inking the serial number on his rods. The rod is in excellent+ condition and was partially restored by Mike Patterson of Dallas, one of the best bamboo rod restorers in the business. No repairs were made to the rod. The rod casts like a dream! It comes with a replacement rod tube from Dana Gray, current owner of the Carlson Rod Co. and an original Sam Carlson rod bag.
Don't miss this chance to be the proud owner of a very historic rod and one that is coveted by all cane rod enthusiasts!
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.
