Paul Young Ace Bamboo Rod 9' 2/2 #7


For sale here is a 9' 2/2 Paul Young Ace bamboo rod. Made entirely at the Young shop circa '48-'50, unlike most "Ace" and "Special" marked rods which were made with outsourced blanks. Rod is darkly flamed, showing a heavy resemblance to the named Parabolic series rods in appearance, a very uncommon feature for a model without hand written script. Features a smooth wells grip with cork reel seat spacer and screw down locking reel seat with "Paul H. Young Co - Detroit" die stamped aluminum butt cap. Ferrules are blued Pernack step-down type. Wraps are dark burgundy. Original tan bag with replacement brass capped tube. Rod weighs 5 3/4 oz and will handle a WF7 line with authority to amazing distances. The action is medium fast and the taper is progressive. All original, straight & right. Excellent condition.

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.
