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


For sale here is a Payne Model 98 in excellent plus condition. The rod weighs 2 3/4 oz. 7' 2/2 for a 4 weight line. All sections are full length and straight. The rod's varnish had melted down so the prior owner stripped the original varnish and brushed on one new coat. Very nicely done. The silks, oxidized hardware and guides are 100% original, as is the grip. Chestnut brown wraps with gold tipping. Browntone cane. Cigar grip in excellent condition. Cap and ring reel seat over spanish cedar. "Sold By Abercrombie & Fitch Co. New York" stamped on butt cap. The rod has a very smooth medium action. Ferrules are size 11/64 and the fit is perfect. Comes with original bag with hang tag and original tube with label. A beautiful example of perhaps the most popular seven foot bamboo rod ever made!

Shipping Information

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.
