Carpenter, Walt - Highlander Special 7' 2/2 4wt


For sale here is a Walt Carpenter Model 70 "Highlander Special". Made in Chester, NY. Seven foot rod for a four weight line. Two sections and two tips. Overall the rod is in excellent condition. Gently swelled butt, cigar grip, blued cap and ring over a deep mahogany (or red cedar?) spacer, transparent tan silk wraps with black edges, cinnamon silks applied at the ferrules and tip tops, and perfect fitting size 12/64 blued ferrules. The rod is nicely varnished (on his website, Walt describes these rods as having an "acrylic" finish - the earlier Highlander models were impregnated). Medium fast dry fly action. This rod casts extremely well. Comes with original bag and tube. The rod weighs 3 1/8 oz.

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).
