Tufts and Batson Bamboo Rod - 8' 3/2 5wt


Here is the latest from the team of Amelia Tufts and Gabe Batson, an 8' 3/2 5wt and man is it a beauty. This Sweet Home Oregon couple live right on the Santiam River and test cast and hone every taper they make. Both are expert casters, know what they want from their rods and they also know what they want them to look like, stunning. This rod is one that will handle large fish and has some backbone. It casts great at all distances. The attention to detail that they put into their rods is tremendous, from the delicate tipping to the white silks that finish the ferrules and winding check, to the clarinet wood they machine for the spacer to the wonderful turned n/s ferrule plugs. This rod is definitely put together with love and it shows. If you are looking for a great all-rounder in a trout rod and want a beauty to boot, well, Gabe and Amelia just made one for you.

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.
