A nice J.D. Wagner Penta fly rod, model 273 FSB 4-5 wt. "Penta number one". 7'3" in length, 2-piece, 2-tip, built for a #4/5 line. Pentagonal construction. Medium, full flexing action. This rod shows signs of light use, as the grip has a very small amount of hand soiling. Flamed cane with what would have been 2 opposed node pattern if this had been a 6 sided blank. Excellent flawless varnish. Chrome guides wrapped in a very light brown with tiny black edges. The swiss-style ferrules are wrapped black and polished. The rod is equipped with a red agate stripping guide. The keeper is on the wrap flat and lettered 2 flats left "J.D.Wagner-Maker" and 1 flat left "Model 273 FSP 4-5 wt." On the wrap flat we have "Penta number one" denoting the first rod of the series. 6" 12 cork blunt western-style grip. Mortised burl spacer and a nickel silver up lock screw lock reel seat with a hidden pocket cap. A super job of craftsmanship from Jeff. Comes with a green cloth bag with leather pull tab and a black painted aluminum tube with brass bottom, collar, and top.
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.
