Default Re: Old Bamboo Rods

The second rod is a Japanese spin/fly. With that many separate sections you might be able put together a nice little "banty", but as is the rod is not something that you need to worry about restoring.

The first rod is probably a Shakespeare, but manufactured by one of the other major rod companies H-I, Monique, South Bend or maybe even Heddon
Whoever rebuilt it last time did a less than stellar job and it could use some love. Throw out those spinning rod guides and start fresh.
Even with the short tip, if there's no more unseen damage it might make for a decent fishin' pole
