Default Need help with rod info

Hello all,

So I got an old rod from my grandma that was my step grandpa's before he passed away a few years ago. She found this and figured I'd want it, I was like sure what the heck.

So I emailed the company thinking they would know more information on it, but they did not even know they had a model named this... yeah


So the rod says Zebco Seabreeze model 501 series Fly 8'6" and that is it.

Anyone here happen to know anything about this rod? Like weight more importantly, doubt I use it since I already have what I need, but I may try it out and see how I like it.

Thanks
Stu

Never heard of it, but if it's the weight you are trying to figure out, you can use the common cents system.

Is it graphite or fiberglass ?
If it's fiberglass, those rods were made by St Croix and are of good quality.
