For sale here is a Payne 7'9" parabolic bamboo rod. Two sections and two tips for a 5 weight line. The rod is in excellent and original conditionwith one minor exception of one tip top being replaced. All sections are full length and straight.
Chestnut silks and gold tipping at the guides. Gold and burgundy tipping at the winding check and male ferrules. There is some very minor cracking in the varnish on some of the wraps near the ferrules (we call these casting cracks and love seeing them on the original Payne rods that have been used with care). Blued hardware. Handsome swelled butt with a ring hook keeper. The cigar grip is 5 1/2" in length with moderate soiling and some very light ridging. Nickel silver cap and ring reel seat over a cork spacer. Some of the bluing has worn off the sliding band and butt cap. The butt cap bears the "Payne" trademark stamp. The ferrules are size 11/64 with a perfect fit and the original ferrule plug is included. The rod weighs 3.90 oz. The parabolic action is on the medium side of medium-fast. Replacement bag and tube.
You will not find an original Payne Parabolic for a lower price. This rod is PRICED TO SELL!
