Sweetgrass Fly Rod 7'9" 3/2 #5 (Octagonal Construction)
For sale here is a very scarce Sweetgrass "Octi" bamboo rod made by Glenn Brackett. Glenn made very few of these rods, constructed using eight strips of bamboo rather than the typical six. The rods were made from start to finish by Glenn. Hollow fluted. This one is a 7'9" three piece rod with two tips for a five weight line. Mint unused condition with original bag and tube! Plastic wrap still on the grip. Full-flexing action (you can even feel it into the grip). Very powerful with amazing pinpoint accuracy! The finished rod weighs 4 5/8 oz. These rods were originally sold for $3,900. Surely a must-have rod for Glenn Brackett devotees!
In 2013, Michael Mauri won the Hardy Cup with an eight-sided Sweetgrass rod. See story here.
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.
