Tufts & Batson Bamboo Rod -- 7'9 3/2 5wt


For sale here is another gem by the talented team of Amelia Tufts and Gabe Batson (Tufts & Batson) -- 7'9" 3/2 5wt. Serial no. 1606. The rod is in near mint condition having been used very sparingly.

The rod features moderately tempered cane with black wraps and burnt orange tipping. Blued guides, agate stripping guide. Nickel silver checks. The Garrison-style grip measures 5 3/4". Handsome nickel silver cap and ring reel seat over a fine mortised rosewood spacer. The butt cap is maker-stamped with the serial number. The step-down ferrules have an excellent fit. Includes nickel silver ferrule plugs. The rod weighs an even 4 oz. The rod features a very smooth medium action. Original bag and labeled tube included. 

Amelia and Gabe are cranking out some seriously stunning fly rods. The casting ability of the rods and attention to detail that they put into each rod is mind-blowing.


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.
