Chin & Herico - 7'1 5wt Bamboo Rod


For sale here we have a fine bamboo rod made by the team of Tom Chin & Rouel Herico of California -- 7'1" 2/2 5wt. Serial no. 122606. The rod is in near mint condition not having been fished, just lawn cast. All sections are full length and straight.

The rod features lovely medium-dark toned cane with chestnut wraps. Red signature wrap as well as red tipping at the winding check, ferrules, and tip-tops. Bright guides. The tips are expertly bookmatched. Handsome burl wood winding check that matches the reel seat spacer. The full-wells grip is 6" in length with the protective plastic shrinkwrap still in place. Up-locking bright nickel silver reel seat over burl wood spacer. There is a bit of very minor wear around the rim of the butt cap. The ferrule fit is excellent. A fine mahogany ferrule plug is included. The rod weighs 4.25 oz. The action is somewhat full flexing and I'd rate it on the medium side of medium-fast. Nice dry fly rod with thin tips and a nice power hinge through the middle of the rod. Includes original bag and labeled tube noting the year made - 2006.


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.
