If your rod is white then I had one of those rods but I don't think it said Gladding on it. At least I don't remember it. It may have been the worst fly rod I have ever owned. It was a noodle stick. The midsection was soft and it had all kinds of peculiar flexing going on. It seemed like the midsection never knew what the tip was doing.
I am not a fan of soft/slow rods so some people may have liked it.
