Thomas and Thomas Paradigm Bamboo Fly Rod 7' 2/2 #4


A Thomas and Thomas Paradigm bamboo fly rod, 7', 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #4 line. Serial #2805. Impregnated model. 3.1 ounces. Good used condition with some patina to the cap and ring. Medium fast DF action but full flexing. Tan oven temper cane done in a three up node pattern. Maroon wraps with no edges. Carbide stripper and dark snake guides. The ferrule fit is good with polished swiss-type ferrules with collars. The grip is a forward weighted blunt cigar that's 5" long. A nickel silver ring separates the grip from the cork reel seat which is flatted and uses a nickel silver cap and ring. No Thomas and Thomas makers stamp on the butt cap and no casting man on the rod shaft, however the writing sure looks like Tom Maxwell's. The cap and ring are polished. The original owner's name is inked on the rod shaft. The rod packs into a tan rod bag with a stiffener and an aluminum tube with a brass cap and ring.
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.
