Payne Model 200L Bamboo Rod 8' 3/1 #4


For sale here is a one-tip Payne Model 200L - 8' in length for a 4 weight line. The rod is in excellent original condition though it does have some very light bag burn as well as a few small chips in the varnish.  All sections are full length and straight. 

A classic Payne rod with the "Sold by Abercrombie & Fitch Co." die stamp on the up-locking ring of the reel seat, along with the Payne trademark die stamp. Spanish cedar spacer. There is a bit of normal wear around the rim of the butt cap. Chestnut wraps with gold tipping. Gold and purple tipping at the winding check and male ferrules. Oxidized hardware with the exception of the reel seat. Agate stripping guide. Ring hook keeper over the handsome swelled butt. The western-style grip measures 5 3/8" in length with mild soiling and a bit of light ridging. Excellent ferrule fit. The rod appears to be mostly in original condition with one exception. The male tip ferrule appears to have been re-blued and the ferrule wraps may be replacement silks, although proper and done a long time ago. The rod weighs 4 oz. with a smooth full flexing medium action with plenty of backbone from the butt section. A delightful small stream rod. Original bag and tube included.
