Chris Raine (Dunsmuir Rod Co) 8'3" 3/2 #5 Bamboo Rod


For sale here is an extremely nice hollow-built bamboo rod made by Chris Raine - 8'3 2/2 for a 4 or 5 weight line (I'd call it a true 5 weight). The rod is in unfished condition. The action is authoritative and on the medium side of medium fast. Flexes deep into the butt if called upon (plenty of reserve power). Back in 2011, Chris called it his "Fin Deluxe" model. Powell-style grip, oxidized ferrules and guides, transparent silks tipped with dark claret, 2x2x2 node pattern. The truncated ferrules are size 13/64 and 18/64. Original bag, bag tag and labeled aluminum tube. Chris charges $2,500 for a new rod and you can get this one without the long wait for much less. Don't miss out as this shouldn't last long at this price!

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).
