For sale here is an amazing Hardy Palakona Phantom bamboo rod. Six feet ten inches, two sections with two tips. The rod is completely original and in unused condition. Both sections are full-length and arrow-straight. Black silks with red tipping. Aluminum cap and ring over all-cork reel seat. There's a "3" stamped into both males and the female ferrule. Serial number ICQ163862. Complete with ferrule plug. The rod weighs 3 3/8 oz. Comes with its original Hardy bag and a leather tube that I don't profess to be original, but the fit is perfect for the rod so I cannot be certain.
There was a small batch of these rods made somewhere between 2004-2006. This rod was purchased in 2006 from the late John Mathers, Hardy's Canadian distributor at that time.
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.
