Payne Model 201 Bamboo Rod 8' 3/2 #5


For sale here is a Payne Model 201 bamboo rod in excellent refinished condition. 8 feet, 3/2 for a 5 weight line. Classic Payne dry fly action on the medium side. All sections are full length. No repairs have been made to the cane and none are required. Many of the silks have been re-wrapped and appear a different color than the originals, especially the "purple" tipping at the male ferrules. The photos show these differences. The stripping guide is a later replacement as well. Ferrules are size 15/64 and 10/64, the fit is perfect. Ferrule plugs included. The rod weighs 4.60 oz. Up-locking reel seat over a Spanish cedar spacer. "Made for Abercrombie & Fitch" stamp on the locking ring. The reel seat and spacer is void of any major scratches or dents. The grip has been cleaned and is in excellent condition. The rod comes with the original bag, which was written on by a former owner. Original labeled tube also included. The label may be a newer replacement.

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.
