Mike Spittler Hollowbuilt Quad Bamboo Rod 8' 2/2 #5
Here is a superb M. K. Spittler Co. 8′ 2/2 fluted hollow-built quad for a DT5 line. Excellent original condition. The level of craftsmanship Mr. Spittler possesses is beyond impressive! The rod weighs 4 1/8 oz. Medium fast dry fly action. Serial #293. Single nickel silver ring over cork reel seat with a nicely burled wood insert below the seat. The rod has oxidized square-to-round ferrules with a bit of bluing loss on the female ferrule. Sam Carlson-like delrin check above the slightly soiled grip and a square-to-round grip shape as well with a reverse wells flare. Darkly flamed cane with golden nodes in a spiral pattern. Garnet silks and black edges. Outstanding varnished finish with only a few very small use marks (no chips). Comes with it original labeled poplin bag and original labeled tube. A phenomenal rod!
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.
