Default Winston passport serial number???

I just got a Winston passport 5 weight today, and am in the process of filling out the warranty card. It asks for the serial number which should be on the butt section of the rod. I can't seem to find this number. Can anyone be specific on where the number is located?

thanks,
mike

It should be right above the hook keeper or in that general area.

Found it! It wasn't near the hook keeper really. The problem was that the font was black and the rod is brown plus I kept searching for it in a low light situation.

That drives me nuts. Sage is notorious for using dark ink on dark blanks also.

Sage's owner card and website tells you to use sunlight in order to see the serial number. It's a top secret sort of thing...
