Payne Special Spinning Bamboo Rod

For sale here is a beautiful and quite scarce Payne "Special" spinning bamboo rod -- 6' weighing 4 1/2 oz. 5-pc. The rod is in mint condition with the minor exception of a few indentations in the cork grip from the guides on the other sections being packed tightly next to it in the bag/tube. All sections are straight. Medium tempered cane with rich chestnut silks and gold tipping. Gold and magenta at the winding check and male ferrules. Oxidized guides. The blued Swiss-style ferrules are size 16/64, 13/64, 11,64, and 9/64; all are a perfect fit. The rod features the distinctive bright aluminum topped cork ferrule plugs that place this rod as being made sometime after 1948. The rod includes the original bag with hang-tag, both in pristine condition, as well as presumably the original tube with unique paper label. This rod was most likely a custom order as denoted by the "Special". As such it is very scarce. Don't miss a chance to own a true find among Payne rods, especially one in such fine condition.
