Jim Schaaf Dickerson 8012 Hollowbuilt Bamboo Rod 8' 2/2
For sale here is a Dickerson 8012 taper bamboo rod built by Jim Schaaf, previous owner of the Dickerson rodmaking equipment and co-author with Dr. Gerald Stein of the Dickerson book. The book lists only two original Dickerson 8012's in the Dickerson ledger and describes it as being "light and supple offering delightful liveliness". The lightest of the 8' series, "casts exceptionally well, laying out a three-weight line without a wrinkle". This mint condition rod is hollowbuilt and weighs 3.15 oz. Classic 3x3 Dickerson node pattern. The ferrule fit is great. Oxidized hardware. Yellow/gold silk windings with black edges. Comes with original bag, labeled tube and canvas bag. This rod comes directly from the personal collection of Dr. Gerald Stein.
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.
