Walt Carpenter Browntone 7'6 2/2 5wt Bamboo Rod - Mint
For sale here is a mint condition Browntone bamboo rod made by Walt Carpenter. 7 1/2 feet 2/2 for a 5 weight. Wrapping still on the grip....unused condition. This was the first rod made by Mr. Carpenter upon leaving the Payne Rod Co. Provenance letter from Walt included with the sale. Photos reveal the finer details of the rod, including the unique cork grip and reel seat (coined the "Ellis grip"). Walt did not own a die stamp when he made this rod, so you will not find the usual stamping on the pocketed butt cap. Another one-of-a-kind item for the discerning collector.
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.
