For sale: 2 Sage Spey Rods, together or individually

I hate to part with them as these were the first two premium spey casting tools I'd ever owned. The 7136-4 and the 1510-4, two classics from the spey uprising in the pacific northwest, purchased from the Swallows Nest in Seattle back in the day.

#1 - Sage 10150-4 Brown, sock and tube
Used caringly, has done the deed many times for me in the bigger rivers of the pacific northwest.

#2 - Sage 7136-4 Brown, sock and tube
Fit by Sage at the factory with the new 7141-4 handle and reel seat. The original wood seat was not working for me so they fit the rod with the new one in black at Bainbridge, this is not custom work. Although I liked the aesthetics of the old wooden reel seat, I love the way the newer seat functions (rock solid). The classic brown rod with the new handle, one-of-a-kind and a stock rod.

Make an offer by PM please.

I am a motivated seller, don't make me go to eBay!

Still on the block... and I'm ready to wheel and deal!

$450 for the set... last chance before they go to eBay!

Juro, I sent you a PM a couple of days ago - not heard back from you. Did you receive it?

03-25-2004, 07:53 AM
Let me check...

Hi Juro:

Do you still have the Sage spey rods?


03-26-2004, 09:56 PM
Still not sold.

You should have received another message from me yesterday, Juro.

03-27-2004, 09:00 AM
Ooops - OK I replied.

Pending the outcome... I will move to eBay on these items tonight. Sorry, I am in a cash bind.

$450 plus shipping takes the pair.

Sent another PM on Saturday, Juro. Can you update me on where things stand? Thanks.

Juro, I sent you another message a couple of days ago. Message tracking says you've picked it up, but haven't heard back as yet. Also sent it by email. Any news?

04-01-2004, 08:56 AM
Man I think there must be a message problem - I've replied recently.

Anyway, I have received better offers but will honor yours since you made the first commitment.

I have not had time to estimate shipping (per our last conversation) but will when I can. As you know this means packing them up and going through the motions with the shipper. I assume it will cost about 40-60 USD? What's your limit so I can either back out or ship?

I appreciate that, thank you. No sign of your message here - maybe I'm up to my limit on PM's? I've deleted some anyway.

As for shipping, that estimate is fine by me. I have had items sent via USPS in the past, which has worked OK, so you could try them if it's convenient for you. I think the dimensions should be OK for their Airmail Parcel service (max. length 60"). According to their website, and including insurance, I think it should come to somewhere around $30 on this service.

I think $30 is very low, I have sent single rods in tube under 60" and UPS wants $70-100 (expedited or air only).

Parcel post will probably (for two rods insured) run closer to $60 via US postal service as I have paid $40 for one rod in the past.

My question is, what is your upper end limit so I can decide to back out of the transaction or not?

04-01-2004, 01:08 PM
Juro, you have another PM.

Thank you for all the interest, the rods are sold.
