Darryl Whitehead 7' 2/2 #3

A 7' Darryl Whitehead 2 piece, 2-tip rod, serial #79. Darryl really pulled out all the stops on this one. The action is a medium-fast #3, a clone of the Thomas Fairy taper. Perfect varnish. Full engraving treatment, agate stripper and leather rod tube. First the grip, western style with 1/4" high quality corks. The reel seat is a cap and ring slide band with a gunstock-quality mortised Circassian walnut insert. Both the cap and ring are fully engraved by Paolo Barbetti and the cap states "Whitehead, Maker, No 79". Flamed rod shaft wrapped in brown with black edges and extra apricot and black edges at ferrules and keeper. Spiral node pattern construction with mirrored tips. No keeper on this rod. Red agate and stripper guide. Swiss-style ferrules with engraving. Red poplin bag and leather case which is stamped "D.L. Whitehead Rod Co."

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.
