Payne Model 95 Bamboo Rod 6' 2/1 #3


For sale here we have the dainty Payne Model 95 -- 6' 2/1 3wt. The rod is in excellent original condition except that one tip section was damaged between the tip-top and last snake guide and an invisible protective wrap was placed over this as a repair. Therefore, we are pricing this as a one-tip rod.

Moderately tempered cane with chestnut silks and gold tipping. Gold and purple at the winding check and male ferrules. Blued guides. Ring hook-keeper. Lightly swelled butt. Petite cigar grip 4 1/4" in length with moderate soiling. Blued cap and ring reel seat over a mortised Spanish Cedar spacer. The butt cap reads, "SOLD BY ABERCROMBIE & FITCH CO. NEW YORK". 

The rod weighs a svelte 1.75 oz. The ferrules are size 8/64 with an excellent fit. The action is classic medium. A terrific brookie or cutthroat rod for those tiny blue lines on the map. Includes original bag and tube.

Please note: Paypal is not accepted for international sales. Please use a credit card or choose "Direct Bank Transfer" if you purchase the rod online.

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).

Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
