Gary Howells Bamboo Rod 7' 2/2 #5


For sale here is a gorgeous bamboo rod in excellent condition built by the late Gary Howells - 7 feet for a 5 weight, weighing 2 5/8 oz in a 2/2 format. Skeleton cork seat, half wells grip, blued guides, original bag and tube, but sticker on the tube has come off over time in pieces, so I taped it back together. Some of the bluing on the stripping guide has worn off. No issues with the cane. Ferrule fit is perfect with both tips. No sets, all sections are straight and full length. All silk wraps are still very solid - no fraying, cracking, etc. Grip is slightly ridged. If you have any other questions, please let me know.

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.
