Maxwell Leonard 39-5 Fly Rod 7'6" 2/2 #5

Leonard 39-5 Hunt model ser# 80116 2pc, 2t. Mint + condition. The slim cigar grip is clean and unsoiled. No brassing to the inside of the guides on one tip. The second tip has just the beginnings of some brassing. I would suggest this rod had one tip lawn cast only. The pewter oxidation at the ferrules has no sign of any wear. Excellent varnish, no flaws. Agate stripper. Marked 39-5 on the wrap flat. Wrapped in the plum colored silks which turn to garnet red when treated with varnish. Tiger maple reel seat. The oxidation to the butt cap seems to have faded some, but not from any wear. ( I can restore that if you wish). The stamp in cartouche reads "H.L. Leonard Rod Co., the Rod Maker, since 1869" Straight rod sections, tight ferrules, nice D.F. action. Not many like this around anymore.
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.
