Orvis Wes Jordan 8'6 8wt Bamboo Rod with Leather Tube


For sale here is a 8 1/2 foot impregnated Orvis "Wes Jordan" bamboo rod. 5 1/8 oz. Marked for a 9 line but like most Orvis rods, a line down from this designation works best. Serial #64692. Made in 1972. The rod is in excellent original condition. Darkly tempered cane with lighter areas around the nodes. Caramel translucent wraps are secure and in excellent condition. Cigar grip lightly soiled and features a thumb indentation as well as an indentation for the palm. Aluminum down-locking reel seat with Walnut spacer looks as if it has been used very little, excellent shape. Ferrule size 15/64 with a nice fit. Medium-fast action. Original leather tube and bag. The original owner's name is on the rod as well as inscribed on the bottom of the butt cap. A very nice example of a lovely Orvis taper. 

Shipping Information

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.
