Payne Model 98 Bamboo Rod 7' 2/2 #4/5


For sale here is a Payne Model 98 in excellent plus condition. The rod weighs 3 oz. 7' 2/2 for a 4-5 weight line. The action of the rod is a bit faster than most of the earlier Model 98s that weighed less. Cap and ring reel seat over spanish cedar. All sections are full length and straight, and the ferrule fit is perfect. Walt Carpenter re-wrapped one guide, re-oxidized the reel seat hardware, applied a slight overcoat of varnish to the wraps, and made a replacement ferrule plug. Complete with original bag, tube, and hang tag. This is a very nice Model 98!

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.
