I received two Diamondback Backwater rods this past Christmas along with two SA system 2 reels. My uncle purchased the rods when I was young and saved them. They were completely unused and still in the plastic cork wrapping when he gave them to me. I have the 909-3 and the 906-3.
I was wondering what year this model was released. I know they are quite old and I have seen them as topics on sites as early as 2000, but I can't find an exact date. I would just love to know some most history about these rods and know exactly how old they were and what people think about them. It seems that the 909 gained quite a reputation in the striper fishing community. Would appreciate any background anyone could offer. Thanks.
