Default Re: The newest member of the family...

I just happen to have a 1977 Herter's catalog right here

Herter's World Famous Handmade Super Light Fresh-Water Finished Hollow Glass Fly Rods

Brushy rivers where you do not have room to use longer rods, these are the ideal fly rods. Rods for serious fly fishermen. Extremely light in weight yet no fish can break them in the hands of a competent fly rod fisherman. No fly rods in the world have the Mag-Power action built in the microscopic space nose cone glass threads. Special lightweight locking rings. Special neoprene rubber butt prevents damage to the rod in case or when setting rod down. Prevents slipping on clothing if you rest your rod on your body. With heavy wall fiber case. Shpg.wt.2 1/2 lbs

RFSC6.... length, 6' ..weight, 2 ozs...No. of Guides, 6.. Pieces, 2, 39".. Breakdown, (off-center ferrule).. Tip Dia, 5/64..Butt Dia, 21/64..Action, Super-Light.. AFTMA Std. Line Weight, 5..Per Rod, $19.27

Recommended fly reel for above rods, Herter's Model 314
(that's exactly what it says... no typo )

I'm not going to write out all the info for the reel but that's what you have

Herter's International Fly Reel. model 314.... $7.97
(international in this case means "made in Japan" )

Herter's rods aren't likely to go for anything near $250. More like "more than what you payed" to $125 at the very most
But that is a nice one, and it was their most expensive glass fly rod
