An excellent Paul Young Parabolic 17 fly rod, 8'6" 2-piece, 2-tip and listed as serial #2144. Marked "Paul H Young Co Det" 3 flats left from the wrap flat. 2 sides left "Parabolic 17 8'6" 5.47 0z GBG GBF". One flat left "Fer 17/64 tip top 5/64". And just below stripper on wrap flat "#2144". The rod has chrome snake guides, a chrome stripper, and light brown wraps. It's 17/64 ferrule is an original super Z with the super Z die stamp and is oxidized black along with the males. The varnish is very good. The 13 1/2" half wells grip is lightly soiled. The all-cork reel seat is mortised and has an oxidized pocket cap and ring. The pocket cap is die stamped "Paul H Young Co, Detroit-Mich" in the cartouche. Please note: there are two angled slash marks in the cane on the wrap flat just below the serial number on the butt. One of these has caused a crack line to show in the varnish so there may be some movement in that facet. In addition, there is a short seam and an edge chip just in front of the grip. Other than that the rod is straight, good to go, and has the original bag and tube.

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).
