Heddon #17 “black Beauty” 8 ½’ Bamboo Fly Rod For Sale
HEDDON #17 “BLACK BEAUTY” 8 ½’ BAMBOO FLY ROD
This nice little Heddon was
redone following the usual Heddon varnish problems. Professional work on the new finish and
wraps, with the cork and reel seat cleaned up.
The cork is protected by plastic wrap.
Marked bag and marked tube are original.
This rod has #2 ferrules, which are 18/64” and 11/64”. Rod weight is 5 ounces. Casts a 6wt with lots of power. Good general-purpose trout rod. Condition is excellent after
restoration. However, the mid has hsad a
ferrule re-set and it is about and inch short (see photo). If something is wrong with an item beyond any
defects noted, you may return it for purchase price within 5 days. However, I cannot re-negotiate the price
after the sale, or pay for repairs. Payment by PayPal, your VISA, or you can
show up in Bend, Oregon, with the cash. In that event, I will buy the coffee. Buyer pays postage and insurance only,
probably about $18 in the US,
but check the calculator for your zip code, especially with our new larcenous
postal rates. NFLCC/SIA/AMFF.
