Tufts and Batson Bamboo Fly Rod 7' 2/2 #4


A Tufts and Batson bamboo fly rod, 7', 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #4 line. Serial #1408 which is noted on the tube cap. The rod weighs 3.5 ounces on my scale. The rod appears mint and unfished. Medium fast action. The rod is nice and straight and the ferrules seat well. Medium lightly flamed cane done in a three up node pattern. No writing on the shaft. Dark almost black wraps with light orange tipping and a lighter band of yellow at the tip top and ferrules. Agate stripper. Bright 11/64 ferrules with an accompanying ferrule plug. Blunt cigar grip with a stairstep front check and coin edge knurl on the rear check. Polished bright cap and ring reel seat over a dark wood spacer. The maker's mark and serial number are stamped into the back of the reel sat cap. The rod packs into a black cloth tube and an aluminum brass topped tube with the maker's sticker affixed to the outside and the maker, rod specs, and serial number engraved into the top cap.

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.
