A nice RL Winston bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 3-piece, 2-tip, built for a #4 line. Serial #2997. A Brackett-era rod, completed on June 14th, 1995. Weighs 3.6 ounces on my scale. Near mint condition. Very clean grip, the only signs of use are some reel band impressions on the back of the reel seat wood. Medium fast action. Wheat straw color cane with a three up node pattern. Keeper one flat right. Carbide stripper, chrome snake guides and tip tops. Excellent varnish characteristic of Montana-made Winstons. The rod is wrapped tan with black edges at the ferrules and tip-tops. The grip is 5 3/4" long and done in a Western profile with the mass shifted forward to about three corks down. The slide band reel seat is flatted oiled walnut and the hardware is a nickel silver slideband and pocket cap with the Winston logo engraved on the bottom. Ferrule fits are good and the rod is pin straight. Eggshell color cloth rod bag and brown painted rod tube with the gold anodized collar and brass top with the Winston data sticker.
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.
