For sale here is a John Pickard Model 7625 bamboo rod, his rendition of the classic Lyle Dickerson 7613 taper. Made with pre-embargo cane. 7 1/2 feet, 2/2 for a 5 weight line. Rod is in excellent plus condition. The oxidation on one tip section doesn't exactly match the other tip and the butt section, so one would assume John made the second tip at a later date. Same 3-up node pattern throughout. All sections are full length. The rod features a very authoritative medium fast action. Blued hardware with bright aluminum down-locking reel seat. The rod weighs 4 1/4 oz. (with either tip) Ferrules are 13/64. Comes with original bag and tube. A great opportunity to land one of John's fine rods for much less of a price than most we've offered here. You will not be disappointed!
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.
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.
