Zietak, Tim - Garrison Model 221 Bamboo Rod


For sale here is a Tim Zietak Garrison Model 221 -- 8'9" 2/2 7wt bamboo rod. The rod is in excellent overall condition with one exception. The male ferrule on one of the tip sections needs to be reset as it is clicking. All sections are full length and straight.

Varnished finish with transparent honey wraps, mahogany at the winding check and ferrules. The tip-tops are burgundy and olive, respectively to distinguish them from one another. Lightly blued guides. Maroon agate stripping guide. Garrison-style grip 6 1/4" in length with light soiling. Down-locking reel seat with a brass locking ring over a burl walnut spacer. Cork fighting butt 2 1/2" in length. The Swiss-style ferrules are size 15/64 with an excellent fit. The rod weighs 5.50 oz. The action is medium-fast.

Includes original bag and tube with label and brass fittings. The brass cap is dented though it doesn't hinder usage in any way.

Grab this rod at a huge bargain, send it to Tim to reset the ferrule, and enjoy for a lifetime!

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.
