Orvis Shooting Star Bamboo Rod


For sale here is an 8'6" Orvis "Shooting Star" impregnated bamboo rod. Serial #43212 built in 1966. The rod is in excellent condition. All sections are equal length and straight. Fully assembled, the rod actually measures closer to 8'7", or 8'9" with the extension butt attached. The extension section comes from a graphite "Shooting Star" model, which is why the extension butt is marked 9'. The rod has not been repaired and it fits perfectly into its original bag and tube. The rod weighs 6.55 oz (without the butt) and the ferrules are 16/64 and fit together perfectly. Comes with the original green bag with separate pocket for the 2" extension butt and the original tube missing its label.

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.
