Thramer, AJ - Signature Series 8'3 5wt Hollow-built Bamboo Rod


For sale here is a very nice hollow-built rod built by AJ Thramer from his signature series. An 8'3 2/2 for a 5 weight line. Serial no. TH2566. The rod remains in mint condition. All sections are full length and straight. 

Flamed cane with 3 x 3 node spacing. Gold wraps with emerald tipping. Oxidized guides with a nice agate stripping guide. The serial number is written on all sections with the rod model inked on the swelled butt. Ring hook keeper. Full wells grip 6" in length. Black aluminum down-locking reel seat with a beautifully figured wood spacer. Oxidized step-down ferrules with a perfect fit, nice and snug. The rod weighs in at 4.45 oz. The action is a swift medium-fast dry-fly capable of considerable finesse. The butt has a good bit of backbone thanks in part to the swelled butt. The long length lends itself well to mending and perfect drifts through tricky seams. 

Includes the original bag with hang tag and tube with logo. A wonderful rod that easily rivals rods twice the price.

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.
