Default Re: Looking for help with vintage rods

Someone else recently asked about the 24, I think
It's a "bass action" 7wt (HCH) and one of the better South Bends.
However at 9', I think that you might find it uncomfortably tip-heavy unless you can balance it with a heavy enough reel

Ard may be undervaluing the South Bend line by just a bit.
I was recently offered $300 for one of mine, but I think that it's worth a bit more
