EC Powell Bamboo Fly Rod 8'6" 2/2 #6


A nice EC Powell Maslan period bamboo fly rod, 8'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for what feels to me like a #6 line. Weighs 4.3 ounces on my scale. Medium fast, full flexing action and the rod is nice and straight. The patent date is inked on the shaft. Excellent overall condition. One tip top has been wrapped with a slightly darker color, and someone has lightly scratched some numbers into the bottom of the butt cap, but otherwise the rod is in superb condition for its age. Medium wheatstraw colored cane built in a two-opposed node pattern. Light caramel brown wraps throughout including the full intermediates. The keeper wrap has the cream and black matched tipping and the keeper is a small snake typical of the Maslan period. The bright 14/64 ferrules seat properly. The grip is in excellent condition with the Powell-style profile. The seat is an aluminum uplocking screwlock over a bakelite insert, and the Powell stamp is on the seat's threaded barrel. The rod packs into a brown cloth bag and aluminum brass topped tube that looks original to my eye. A nice example of this Powell model/taper.

Shipping Information

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.
