People often check with those guys about old no-name rods and sometimes they are surprised. Usually not, but still...
Normally, I'm all about that.
The guys at the Classic Forum have insight and skills far and beyond what the folks have here.
Personally I wouldn't fish a rod with intermediate wraps. Those are the spaced thread wraps that are away from the guides and furels.
To me these wraps are an indication that the manufacturer did not trust the glue that was used to cement the sections

That may very well be a Hardy, I've appraised one very much like it.
I told the guy that it really wasn't worth hanging on to.
