Re: Diamondback Backwater
Diamondbacks were "old school". They employed fiberglass not carbon scrim, medium modulus graphite, relatively large diameter, thick walled construction. A little heavier but a lot stronger. Sometimes I use automotive annologies to "classify" rod designs and will talk about super high performance but fragile "sport car" rods and comfortable, less demanding "sedan" rods. Well, Diamondback's are a 1st rate "truck" rod and I sure do miss them. A rough equivilant in today's rods from #6 - 12 are Albright's XX series. More modern technology but truck rods none-the-less.
