Default Re: Fix 'er upper

There are no markings on the rod to say what kind it is. It is more of a sentimental rebuild than anything. I am loving the tips. The reel seat is still in great condition and pulled right off. The handle on the other hand is very beat so I think I will replace it. I think I will need to add more, new, guides as they have some corrosion and there are only 4 on the rod. It is 6'7'' so I think 7 plus the tip guide would be the right amount from what I've read. The blank is a darker green colour which I think looks great. It is the one in the top of this picture:
