Default Re: info on vintage rod

I want to thank everyone for the info. Especially Innes for making my pics viewable to everyone.

I'll post section lengths and eye count in a little bit when I get back home.

Ty riptide! Do you have any idea when a rod like this would have been produced? In the 60's or 70's?

I really like how the rod feels. It seems to just want to "cast" for a lack of better words. Would really like it to shine with a good 7 wt line. I'm wanting to target some local smallmouths.
