Tom Maxwell Fly Rod 6' 3/2 #3/4

An elegant little 6' 3-piece Tom Maxwell rod, 2 tips, one of which is a #3 weight while the other (and slightly darker) tip is a #4. Medium dark cane with red silk wraps, no edges. "Maxwell" inscribed 1 flat right, "833" (March 1983?) 3 flats right, and "634" (6" #3,#4) 5 flats right. The grip is a short 7-cork slim cigar. The reel seat is an all cork barrel with a lightweight nickel silver pocket cap with a narrow ring set off from the grip by a knurled nickel silver cork check. Leonard style front cork check. Unusual stripping guide (see bottom photo). Maxwell/Marinaro ferrules in polished unoxidized form. Black tungsten steel snake guides. Tip tops are the typical Maxwell bent wire strapped down on the sides. Lovely thin varnish on rod shafts. As noted the #3 tip is a slightly lighter color with the #4 a slightly darker temper. This is a fast but full flexing action. The bag is original, however the rod was packed in a cordura tube for "knocking about" and the original tube was lost by the estate.

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.
