Payne Model 100H Bamboo Rod - 7'6 2/2 4-5wt
For sale here is a Payne Model 100H bamboo rod in excellent condition. 7 1/2 feet, 2/2 for a 5 weight (some like it with a DT4). The rod weighs 3 7/8 oz. The action of this rod is a bit more on the medium fast side compared to the standard Model 100. Made for Abercrombie and Fitch. The wraps are the Payne-typical brown silk tipped with gold. Ferrules are size 12/64. Up-locking reel seat over spanish cedar spacer. Nice agate stripping guide. Typical exquisitely-executed cane work. The bluing on the ferrules and guides shows some wear and some of the wraps also show some aging. The varnish remains in excellent condition. The Payne-style grip has been cleaned and is in excellent condition without ridging. Comes with the original poplin bag and brass-capped aluminum tube. The hang tag is in nice condition as well.
