Marty Karstetter Bamboo Fly Rod 8'3" 3/2 #4


A Marty Karstetter bamboo fly rod, 8'3", 3-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #4 line. Serial #19613. Hollow built construction. The rod weighs 3.9 ounces on my scale. Mint condition. Fast action. Flamed cane with a two opposed node pattern. Brown main wraps with black edges at the keeper and ferrules. Black stripper and snake guides. The truncated swiss ferrules are oxidized. Very nice varnish. The grip is 6" long and shaped to a half wells profile with a slight scallop at the heel. The reel seat is made up of a lovely burl walnut spacer under a cap and ring. The cap and ring are oxidized and the cap is stamped "Marty Karstetter, Maker". The rod packs into a tan cloth bag with a pearl snap. The tube is gray frost coated aluminum with a "Karstetter Rods" logo on it.
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.
