Hardy Palakona Salmon Deluxe Bamboo Fly Rod 9'6" 3/2 #7


A Hardy Salmon Palakona Deluxe bamboo fly rod, 9'6", 3-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #7 line. The rod weighs 7.9 ounces on my scale. The rod appears to have been lawn cast. The rod is straight and the ferrule fits are good. The rod action is on the faster side. Wheatstraw oven tempered cane with slightly darker nodes in an approximate three up node pattern. Wraps are red with black edges and the snake guides are reverse twist chrome. The step ferrules are oxidized. The grip is 9" long and shaped to a full wells profile with a provision for a hidden pocket cap. The spacer is black plastic. The uplocking aluminum screwlock is stamped "Made by / Hardy's England". The rubber button screws out and a fighting butt is provided for in the bag. The ferrules have cork and aluminum finial style ferrule plugs. The rod bag is a green color twill and packs into a black plastic tube with a Hardy sticker on it.

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.
