A rare Orvis two-handed salmon rod, 11'6" 3-piece 2-tip rod listed for a "F2AE" line (which, in terms of grain weight was approximately the equivalent of a #10 at the time - as always with spey rods, you will likely want to try a few different lines to get it dialed in). Serial #24654 lettered on the shafts, indicating a likely manufacture date of 1958. Impregnated bamboo in 3-up node pattern construction. Medium-slow action. Listed at 10.5 ounces. Cork grip (8" foregrip, 6" bottom) with soiling. Aluminum screwlocking reel seat and bottom rubber button. This rod has been fished and is in fair condition with a few issues: notably, the top guide on the butt section is loose and needs re-wrapping and the wraps at the ferrules have been overwrapped with some resulting alligatoring. Comes in green cloth bag with aluminum Abercrombie and Fitch tube. A nice chance to make a small fix and enjoy fishing this with a nice mid or long belly line.
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.
