HL Leonard Model 50 Bamboo Rod 8' 3/2 #5/6


For sale here is a H.L. Leonard Model 50 bamboo rod -- eight feet and labeled for a six weight line but I find it nicely balanced with a DT5 as well. Serial #2540 from the Ted Simroe era. The rod is in excellent original condition. All sections are full length with no repairs. Medium colored cane with red wraps with green edges at the male ferrule and hookkeeper wraps. Down-locking aluminum reel seat with butternut wood spacer. Bright nickel-silver ferrules with oxidized guides. Includes original yellow factory bag and original labeled tube. Rod weighs 4 1/8 oz. Medium action. There are sets in both tips that can be removed. Excellent ferrule fit. Ferrules are 15/64 and 10/64. The rod has the original owner's name on one flat.

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.
