For sale here is a wonderful example of a Julius Vom Hofe raised pillar trout fly reel. German silver and ebonite construction. Size 3. Mechanically the reel is in excellent condition. No cracks exist in the hard rubber. The stamping on the backplate is visible. The foot is a bit kinked on one end but can be put back straight by a competent reel mechanic. It fits the reel seats on the few rods I tested it on. A super nice example of one of my favorite reels!
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.
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.
