For sale here is a stunning Presentation rod made by R.D. (Bob) Taylor - 7'6" 2/2 for a 5 weight line. Another example of why Bob is still one of the best bamboo rod makers in the world with a rich heritage in the Catskill rodmaking circles. The rod has a slightly and elegantly swelled butt section. Medium dark oven tempered cane. Cigar grip. Oxidized nickel silver cap and ring over a very nice butternut insert. Oxidized guides and nickel silver ferrules. Dark brown silks with black tipping and full intermediate wraps. The rod is in excellent overall condition. All sections are full length and straight and no repairs exist. The varnish is excellent plus. Slight loss of bluing on the butt cap and slight soiling on the grip. Medium fast action. The rod weighs 3 3/4 oz. The ferrules are 13/64 with an excellent fit. Original bag and tube.
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.
