A nice RD Taylor fly rod, 7', 2-piece, 2-tip, built for a #4 line. Serial #24-4-137. Medium-slow action. This rod was well used judging by the grip soiling but appears in excellent condition otherwise. The varnish is excellent as well as the ferrule fit. The bamboo is flamed to a light chestnut color and has a two opposed node pattern. The main wraps are light brown with red edges and a band of black at the keeper and male ferrules. The keeper is 1 flat right. The step ferrules are oxidized along with the other hardware. The grip is a medium cigar, 10 corks long or 5". The reel seat is varnished walnut with Bob's (as usual) excellent hand-turned hardware. The butt cap is stamped " R.D. Taylor, maker" in a cartouche. This rod comes packed in the original bag and brushed aluminum tube with brass top and bottom.
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.
