Bernard Ramanauskas (Eden Cane / Freestone) Bamboo Fly Rod 7' 2/2 #3


A Bernard Ramanauskas (Freestone / Eden Cane) bamboo fly rod, 7', 2-piece, 2-tips, and built for a #3 line. The rod weighs 3 ounces on my scale. "H703" is inked on the shaft, along with Bernard's highly stylized signature. Medium fast action. Mint condition, and the rod is arrow straight. Scarfed nodeless construction. Very nice varnish, and the wraps are translucent with a single wrap of maroon at the center of the mains, while the ferrules and tip tops are tipped in the same maroon. The wraps at the front cork check are translucent with a spiral wrap of maroon. Small agate stripper. Oxidized and highly truncated swiss style ferrules. The grip is close to a perfect cylinder with a very slight taper toward the front which ends with a thin band of composite cork. The reel seat is an oxidized minimalist cap and ring over a highly figured and stabilized burl. The end cap features the Freestone logo lightly stamped into it. The rod packs into a black bag with a stiffener and the Freestone logo embroidered on the top flap, and a black crackle painted tube with bass hardware.
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.
