Payne Model 202 Bamboo Rod 8' 3/2 #5


For sale here is a Payne Model 202 bamboo rod in excellent + condition. 8' 3/2 for a 5 weight line (some may prefer it with a 6 weight line). The rod weighs 4 3/4 oz. The 15/64 and 10/64 ferrules fit together very well as one would expect. Size 4/64 tip tops. Silky smooth medium action. "Sold by Abercrombie & Fitch Co." die stamp on the reel seat. The rod is wrapped brown with gold edges. Western-style grip. The reel seat is uplocking over a spanish cedar insert. At some point in its life, the wraps received an over-varnish (very nicely executed). One of the tips is a replacement by the Leonard Rod Co. and is a perfect match with the exception of the node placement being a bit different (3-up node pattern of course). Original hang tag, bag and tube included.

Shipping Information
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.
Other Terms
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.
