For sale here is an Everett Garrison Model 209 bamboo rod. Serial Q-8-5 made in 1947. 8' 2/2 5wt. 3.9 oz. Cigar grip with slight hex formation to the top, down-locking swaged and knurled slide band reel-seat, Super Z stamped ferrules (size 13/64), resorcinol glue,clear wraps with chocolate brown to the hook keeper and ferrule stations. Original bag and tube. The rod is in excellent overall condition. All sections are full length. One tip section has been expertly scarfed between the last two snake guides and the consensus is that Garrison could have done it because the protective wraps on either end of the scarf are aged consistently with the other wraps. The other tip section's male ferrule wraps appear newer so the wraps could have been replaced at some point in the rod's life.
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.
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.
