Paul Young Ace Fly Rod 8' 2/1 #6


A Paul Young "Ace" model bamboo fly rod, 8', 2-piece, 1-tip, built for what feels to me like a #6 line. 4.9 ounces. Used but good condition. Semi full flexing action. The rod could use a little bit of straightening to put it in top condition. The cane is lightly flamed and done in a two-opposed node pattern in the butt and a random node pattern in the tip. Wrapped red or garnet with a perfection stripper and high arch black snake guides. The varnish is firm and in good condition. The butt does have a small crack the next flat over from the "Ace" lettering about 1" long that goes under the cork grip. The grip is moderately soiled and shaped to a half wells profile. The downlocking aluminum screwlock screws down over a cork spacer and ends in a nickel silver pocket cap with the stamp "Paul Young Co, Detroit. Mich" in a cartouche. The bag is brown cloth with only one tip compartment and comes with an aluminum tube.

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.
