A very nice Kusse quad here, mint and unfished. Quad construction in a 2-opposed node pattern with a very fast dry-fly action. The grip and reel seat are fashioned from one piece of figured walnut and are fully varnished. The fore part of the medium cigar grip has been "feathered" to configure to the rod blank. Black oxidized cap and ring with the stamp "Ron Kusse, Maker" in the cartouche. Wrapped tan at the guides and brown at the ferrules, keeper, and tip-top. There are five bands of color at the keeper wrap which climbs up onto the front edge of the grip. Packed in a super heavy all-brass tube with a compartmented bag. The level of skill exhibited in the finish and appointments of this rod are far above that exhibited by nearly anyone else you will come across. Just splendid craftsmanship here.
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.
