Payne 100 Bamboo Rod - 7'6" 2/2 #3/4


For sale here is a Payne Model 100 (maybe 100L) bamboo rod in very good and original condition. 7 1/2 feet, 2/2 for a 3/4 weight. Classic Payne dry fly action. The wraps are the Payne-typical brown silk tipped with gold. Mirrored tips. Blued nickel silver pinned ferrules are size 11/64. Down-sliding cap and ring over cedar insert. Nice red agate stripping guide. No issues with the exquisite cane/node work. The bluing on the pocketed butt cap and ring and female ferrule shows some aging from honest use. The cigar grip shows some ridging as can be seen in the photos. The varnish over one of the wraps on the butt section shows some age/minor cracking but the guide remains firmly attached and the thread is still firmly wrapped underneath. All other wraps are in excellent condition. Varnish in excellent condition - no softness or bag marks. Original poplin bag and labeled brass-capped aluminum tube. Hang tag is missing, although an upper remnant of it and the attachment to the bag are still present. Rod weighs 2.85 oz which may mean it's a 100L model, which was a bit lighter than the standard Model 100 that weighed between 3 1/4 - 3 3/8 oz. Grip measures 5.3".
