RL Winston Bamboo Fly Rod 7' 2/2 #4


A nice RL Winston bamboo fly rod, 7', 2-piece, 2-tips, built for a #4 line. Serial # 2600. The owner's name and weight are inked on the rod, the latter at 2 5/8 ounces (though my scale has it closer to 3.4). Oven tempered cane done in a three up node pattern. As with all of the Montana Winston rods, the varnish is fantastic, right up there with the very best of the best. The wraps are tan with cinnamon edges at the keeper, ferrules, and tip-tops. Chrome snake guides and a #8 SRMC carbide stripper. The action is a full flexing medium. The rod condition is near mint or lawn cast, with a cosmetic "casting crack" in a wrap on one tip only. The grip is 6" long and shaped to a lightly sculpted Western profile. The reel seat is a downlocking pocket cap and ring over varnished wood. The ring and pocket cap are nickel silver and the Winston logo is engraved on the bottom of the pocket cap. The rod packs into a white cloth bag with the Winston logo and a nice leather tube with no makers logo.

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.
