HL Leonard Duracane Bamboo Fly Rod 6'6" 2/2 #4


An HL Leonard Duracane bamboo fly rod, 6'6", 2-piece, 2-tips, and built for a #4 line. Serial #2655 with an approximate manufacture date of the early 1970's. The rod weighs 2.4 ounces on my scale. Very lightly used condition, with no cosmetic cracks to the ferrule wraps, no grip soiling, but there is a tiny bit of brassing to the inner snake guides, a bit of wear on the ferrule welt, and some oxidation that's rubbed off on the corner of the pocket cap. The action is slow to medium. Impregnated cane done in a three up node pattern. Brown wraps with black edges on all wraps. Ceramic stripper in a shock ring and black snake guides and tip tops. The grip is 4 1/2" long and shaped to a fat cigar profile, with an all cork seat with a slide band and nickel silver pocket cap. Both the band and cap are oxidized and the cap is stamped "HLL / HL Leonard Rod Co / Makers". The rod packs into a tan poplin bag with a stiffener and a leather pull tab, and an aluminum tube with brass fittings.
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.
