There is no more information on the rods than I have stated. I am quite green on fly fishing and would like to know how best these rods are used. All the info I find on the internet is for current models. Maybe someone can relate these to current models. Thanks for any help you can give me.
Photron,

The Imperial is a discontinued model made with SCII graphite. It is a slow to moderate action rod. I think it had good quality hardware but I am not sure. I think they were available in two and 4 piece rods.

This site has some listed for sale. This is a new site to me and they have some really good photos of their stuff. I was impressed with the site.
