Ron Kusse Special Presentation Fly Rod 7'6" 2/2 #4/5


A nice Ron Kusse Special Presentation fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tips and built for a #4 or #5 line. Serial #8901. Fast DF action. This rod was built as #25 of a limited set of 25 of these that Ron made. It weighs 4 ounces on my scale (the hang tag states 3 1/4 oz). Mint, uncast condition. Flamed cane with lighter three up nodes. Super high quality varnish. The wraps are brown at the keeper, ferrules, and tip-tops with extra bands at the keeper of purple, dark brown, light brown, yellow, and purple. The main wraps are apricot colored. Oxidized Super Z style ferrules. The grip is 6 1/2" long and tapers to a long swell with a gold plated front cork check. The slide band reel seat is a burl walnut, well varnished, and has a catskill-style wood lip to meet the cork. The cap and ring are plated with 24k gold as well, and boasts a "Ron Kusse, Maker" die stamp. The tan cloth bag has a stiffener and a hang tag with all of the relevant data. The rod backs into an all-brass tube, that in turn packs into an aluminum and leather Arnie Mason made tube (together they are substantial and heavy).

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.
