EC Powell Bamboo Fly Rod 9' 3/2 #5


An EC Powell bamboo fly rod, 9', 3-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #5 or #6 weight. Medium to slow action. The rod weighs 4.9 ounces on my scale. Possibly refinished but I can't tell for certain. The bottom snake on the mid has been re-wrapped. The rod is very straight and the ferrule fits are good. Two opposed node pattern and a patent date inked on the rod shaft. Agate stripping guide and black HSS snakes. The wraps are brown. The grip is 6" long and shaped to a modified half wells style that has some erosion from cleaning. There is a hidden pocket cap for the uplocking screwlock reel seat. "EC Powell, Maker, Marysville CA" is stamped in a cartouche on the seat, and the current owner relayed to me that the spacer was replaced by Glenn Brackett. The rod packs into an olive cloth bag and a non-original aluminum tube.
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.
