Payne Model 204 Bamboo Rod 8'6" 3/2 #5


For sale here is a Payne Model 204 bamboo rod -- 8'6" 3/2 for a 5 weight line, weighing 4.60 oz. The rod is in excellent+ refinished condition. All sections are full length, straight, and repair-free.

The rod features handsomely tempered cane with cinnamon wraps and black tipping. Black, gold, and burgundy tipping at the winding check and male ferrules. However, the wraps lack a black band against the winding check as well as a black band on the ferrule end of the male and female ferrule wraps. Also, the tip-tops feature one and two black bands respectively to number the tips, not Payne-original. Original oxidized guides and one replacement tip-top. Ring hook keeper over a slightly swelled butt. The cigar grip is 5 1/2" in length with only light soiling and very smooth. Blued nickel silver cap and ring reel seat over a gorgeous Spanish cedar spacer. The spacer has been very lightly buffed. The seat retains much of its original bluing. The butt cap reads, "MADE FOR ABERCROMBIE & FITCH CO."

The ferrule fit is excellent. The ferrules may have perhaps been re-oxidized. The action is on the medium side of medium-fast. Includes a replacement bag and polished original tube.
