Ron Kusse Special Taper Fly Rod 6' 2/2 #3


A nice Ron Kusse "Special Taper 24" bamboo fly rod, 6', 2-piece, 2-tips, and built for a #3 line. Serial #9121. The rod weighs 2.5 ounces on my scale (slightly heavier than the hang tag listed weight of 2 ounces). Fast DF action. Mint, unfished condition with paper and gum strips on the grip, which is covered again in shrink plastic. The cane is lightly flamed. The main wraps are light tan with brown edges at the keeper and ferrules and three more bands of various colors at the keeper. The keeper is a black carbide SRMC #8 with black snakes the rest of the way. Oxidized swiss ferrules. The grip is 5" long and turned to a very slim cigar profile. The seat is a hand flatted and perfectly varnished curly maple with a lip up to the grip. The oxidized cap and ring is stamped "Ron Kusse, Maker". The rod packs into a tan cloth bag with a stiffener that runs 3/4 of the bag's length, and an all-brass rod tube with the data sticker from Ron stating that the model is a "Special 24".

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.
