For sale here is a E.F. Payne Model 410 -- 9'6" 3/2 light salmon rod for a #8 line. The rod is in excellent+ condition, refinished by Don Schroeder and the rod has not been fished since. Don also built a third shorter 2" fighting butt for the rod. All sections are full length with slight sets in both tips.
Chestnut wraps with purple tipping. The winding check has purple and red tipping. Red agate stripping guide. Blued guides. Gently swelled butt. Ring hook keeper. The reverse half wells grip is 7 1/8" in length with only light soiling and very smooth save a few dents from being packed into the tube too tight. Bright aluminum up-locking reel seat over a Spanish cedar spacer. The rod includes the butt cap, a 2" fighting butt, and a 5 1/2" fighting butt with hard rubber butt cap. The re-blued ferrules are size 11/64 and 19/64 with an excellent fit. The rod weighs 7.35 oz. with the flush butt cap. The action is medium-fast. Includes the original bag and an original Payne tube with label fully intact although the tube appears to be for a smaller rod -- the fit of the rod and bag is quite tight inside the tube. The tube is also packed in a fine heavy canvas bag with a sleeve for the butt extensions.
