Additional Product Notes
The Tailwind features a highly refined fast recovering, yet deep flexing action that is unlike any other rod available. The Tailwind is remarkably light in the hand (71 grams for the 5wt), quick loading and powerful (loads at 10 feet but will throw 80 feet plus with ease) and has unmatched line feel. The Tailwind is such a revolutionary rod that when people first cast it they often say something like, “That’s a really nice medium action rod, but I need a faster action to build line speed and cast distance”. Then, as they stretch out more line, their faces light up as they feel the rod respond perfectly, continue to push line and build line speed, and easily make longer casts than they ever have before….AND WITH LESS EFFORT!

RETURN & REFUND POLICY
RETURNS for CUSTOM FLY RODS: Fly rods ordered that are to be heavily customized with special reel seats, exotic woods, unique guides systems, or thread color schemes or snake skins, cannot be returned or funds refunded for obvious reasons. It will very well be a beautiful creation but it may not be desired by someone else. So purchase responsibly with this in mind as no returns will be accepted at any time after the order is finalized and work begun.
RETURNS of ONE-of-a-KIND, as-built Fly Rods: On occasion I will have various models of high quality fly rods available that will be for sale "as built" for immediate shipment, such as the fly rod shown above. This rod may be returned if the customer feels it is not exactly what he or she wants as long as it is returned in the same packaging, rod case, and still in the new and unused condition in which it was received by the customer. Rod returns for this reason must be post marked for return mailing within a 10-calendar day time frame from the customer's initial receipt of the rod. Customer will be responsible for the return Shipping, Handling & Insurance sufficient to cover the replacement of the fly rod. The rod will be inspected and compared to the photographs taken prior to shipment and any adjustments will be made prior to the monetary refund. PLEASE request that a signature be required on my end when returning a rod to me for a refund. Without this requirement, I cannot be responsible for lost shipments. Monetary refunds for returned rods will not include the Shipping, Handling & Insurance costs incurred for the shipment back to me. Refunds will be sent by mail in the form of a Cashiers Check made out to the original purchaser.
