Ron Kusse Performance Bamboo Fly Rod 8' 2/2 #6


A Ron Kusse "Performance" model bamboo fly rod, 8', 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #6 line. The rod weighs 4.7 ounces on my scale (the weight listed on Ron's hang tag states it as 3 3/4 ounces). Near mint condition, and probably used a half dozen times or so judging by the ring marks on the seat. There is just the tiniest hint of casting cracks at the ferrule wraps and one tiny spot of brassing on the ferrule welt. Very nice condition overall. Powerful fast action rod. The varnish is perfect and in pristine condition. The cane is flamed and the nodes are done in a three up pattern. The wraps at the ferrules, keeper, and tip tops are brown with light tan on the black SRMC stripper and black snake guides. Mirrored tips. The grip is 6 1/2" long and shaped to a finely tapered cigar that almost touches the large swell. A lip from the mahogany slide band reel seat acts as the rear cork check. The nickel silver slide band and butt cap are both oxidized. The butt cap is die stamped with "Ron Kusse, Maker" in a cartouche. The rod packs into a cloth bag with Ron's hang tag attached and the rod tube is solid brass.

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.
