Ordering and Pricing for Aaron Bamboo Fly and Spinning Rods
Contact Tim Aaron at (503) 475-6603, email to firstname.lastname@example.org to place an order or discuss your rod.
LEAD TIME All Aaron Bamboo Rods are custom made to order. While the lead time varies, expect the finished rod to be delivered between 3 and 6 months after ordering. At the time you order I will provide a more precise time as to when the rod will be complete. While I would love to be able to deliver rods on demand, I am a single man operation and each rod requires at least 50 hours of work.
On occasion - I do have demo rods available for sale. Please contact me to inquire as to pricing and availability.
PRICING The base price for all two piece fly fishing or spinning rods is $1100. Two piece rods - made with two identical tip sections (aka 2/2) are $1350. Add $100 for 3 or 4 piece rods. ROD BLANKS I do occasionally offer rod blanks for sale. Pricing depends on how “blank” the rod truly is (i.e. ferrules, grips, reelseats, etc.). Please contact me if you are interested in a rod blank.
DEPOSIT A $300 deposit is due at the time of ordering. The remainder is due upon completion. CUSTOMIZATION AND UPGRADES All Aaron Bamboo rods are made of the finest Tonkin bamboo available and come standard with nickel silver ferrules and reel seat hardware. Snake Brand guides and and agate strippers are also standard on all fly rods. Single foot titanium fuji guides are standard on spinning rods. All wraps are 100% silk. Rods are individually numbered and signed and come shipped in a cloth bag and aluminum rod tube.
The customization options - including engraving, wrapping, rod design, specific hardware, grip shape, etc. - are limited only by your imagination.
Full or partial wood grip $100 (Wood grips are fantastic. More beautiful than cork and far more sensitive)
Saltwater rods $100 (saltwater rods require the use of specialty hardware to handle the corrosive saltwater. In addition, I use single foot titanium ceramic insert guides on saltwater models)
I use ring and cap reelseats for all fly fishing rods 5wt and below. For heavier rods I use an uplocking screw reel seat. If you have a preference, let me know.
