Vintage Heddon Model 14 Thorobred 8'0, 1 3/4f, 3/2 5 Wt Bamboo Flyrod For Sale

Vintage Heddon Model 14 Thorobred  8'0, 1 3/4f, 3/2 5 Wt Bamboo Flyrod

Vintage Heddon Thorobred Bamboo Fly Rod # 14, 8'0 3/2 1 3/4F ferrule. With bag and tubeThis vintage bamboo rod was made by the Heddon Co. The writing on the rod reads "Heddon, Thorobred, #14, 8'0-1 3/4F- HDH or E", in Cleo Handley's script writing. This rod is made in the much searched for and desired length 0f 8'-0, and in the taper and ferrule size of 1 3/4F which corresponds to 17/64 and 10.5/64 for a Light Trout Rod, according to Heddon nomenclature. This was the taper and ferrule size for a Light Trout Rod, typically a 4 to 5 weight rod. It has nicely tapered tips, a very responsive rod with power in the butt for dry flies, nymphing, and wet flies. The downlocking reelseat is in good shape, made from red/brown Pyralin, with no bulging or melting of the pyralin threads. The hand welted, black japanned ferrules are in excellent shape, tight fitting, all guides and wraps in excellent condition, scarlet red silk. The rod finish is in good shape, clear with no bag rash or finish melts. The handle is in good shape, slight ridging. This rod comes complete with original aluminum tube and bag, a good example of the Post War Heddon Rod Co. bamboo rods. The "bowing" in the pics are by my camera, the rod has all sections equal length, straight with no sets, and the guides and wraps are in good shape, no rust or missing guides. This rod is a beautiful example of the Heddon Rod Co. "The Rod With a Fighting Heart"
Shipping will be the actual cost depending on your location. I suggest that you get insurance, estimated at an extra $5. I do not gouge on shipping. International buyers, please ask for a shipping estimate as it will vary according to location. I suggest shipping to include insurance. Too many things happen to bamboo rods on transit, its only wise for the both of us to insure a rod that will be worth several hundred dollars.
This is a used rod, I accept returns if the rod doesn't meet the description and pictures. If shipping costs seem high, remember that its not my price, cthe listed costs are estimated by according to where you live, I do not enter that amount and they are not the final costs. The shipping costs are based on a package 36" x 5" x 5" weighing 2 to 3 lbs, sent via USPS Priority Mail Insured. I don't make the cost of shipping, it is done by the shipping tool and is an estimate only. I only charge the actual cost of shipping, normally $15 to $20. I will contact you after the finish and we can then decide on your preferred shipping method (i.e.USPS, Fedex, UPS, etc) and cost. Please wait for an invoice before paying. Please feel free to ask me for what my estimated amount would be. Also, please ask for any and all questions, pictures, or anything about condition so that you get a rod that you will be satisfied.
