For sale here is a very scarce 7 foot Goodwin Granger Aristocrat Model 7030 bamboo rod. Two sections with two tips. The rod is one of the "original" Goodwin Granger 7030s circa 1939-41. Very desirable with the short-lived "narrow band" slide band reel seat and hammer handle grip. All sections are full-length and straight. It appears that one tip (the one with the lighter colored wraps) is a replacement. The micrometer measurement differences are 0.20 mm to 0.30 mm thicker on this tip. The original tip and the butt section appear to be totally original with no repairs. The replacement tip could have been ordered as a "heavy" tip and made later, who knows really? The reel seat is a bit dinged up, but this doesn't prevent reels from fitting as they should. The rod weighs 2.90 oz. with the original tip and 2.95 oz. with the replacement tip. The ferrules are 12/64 and the fit is excellent. Comes with its original bag and labeled tube. Priced as a one-tip rod.
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.
