A Sweetgrass Mantra model penta bamboo fly rod, 6'3", 1-piece, and built for a #3 line. Serial #19-037. Mint or perhaps lawn case only. Medium fast action. Pentagonal construction. 2.5 ounces. Very light wheatstraw color cane done in a two-up node pattern. The rod shaft is matte and may have an oil finish. The owner's name is inscribed along with "JR Mantra". The rod is wrapped brown with black edges at the keeper and tip-top. The upper 1/4" in the tip has a slight bend to the right and could use a quick straightening. The grip is 6" long and turned to a blunt cigar profile. The reel seat looks like a stabilized redwood burl and the nickel silver cap, ring, and cork check are all oxidized. The butt cap as the sweetgrass logo on it. The rod fits into a dark painted PVC tube with a cork retaining ring to stop the rod from striking the tube bottom, and the tube has an oval Sweetgrass logo sticker.
Please note that given the size of the tube for this rod we may apply a shipping surcharge to cover any additional costs associated with sending it.
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.
