For sale here is a Payne Model 202 bamboo rod from the 1960's. 8' 3/2 for a 5-6 weight line. The rod weighs 4 5/8 oz with the up-locking reel seat over spanish cedar spacer. A classic Payne rod with the "Made for Abercrombie & Fitch Co." die stamp on the up-locking ring, along with the Payne die stamp. The rod is wrapped brown with gold edges. The grip is western-style and has been cleaned with no ridging present. Complete with ferrule plugs. No hang tag. The ferrules sizes are 10/64 and 15/64. Good ferrule fit on all sections. All sections are straight. Original bag with possible replacement tube and near mint label. One tip on this rod appears to be a replacement from a different era since the male ferrule silk edging is red, unlike the other sections. The bluing formula is also inconsistent with the other sections. The replacement tip is also marginally less in weight (perhaps 1/2 a gram).
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. 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). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
