Default Re: A couple Wonderods. One old, one older.

Here is a Wonderod from the 1950's. Very accurate but it does have some weight. It also has the snaplock spring loaded reel seat.

I should take some pictures of my other fiberglass rods...

I think the J.C. Higgins 312 on my Wonderod A1280B makes a pretty decent looking combo.

Edit:

I was just out in the rainy back yard doing some casting with the A1280B and this W&McG reel with some cheap old 7wt line. I did quite well. I was hitting some hula hoop targets at 65 feet with relative ease.

I have an old Wonderod, it was a gift from my sister when I graduated 8th grade (if I remember correctly; maybe it was high school graduation, but I seem to recall using that rod throughout high school). Anyway, it is a 9-weight that I still use for saltwater fishing. It was my only rod for many years, until I started accumulating tackle a couple years ago.

I like all the different color schemes Shakespeare used.
