Re: Old Classic Rod?
I have a PS40 and mine isn't nearly old as you're thinking and it certainly didn't cost anywhere close to $100 new. Most likely around $15
The PS models (Parmetric Standard) were the lower priced Parametrics but most likely they used the same blank as their higher end brothers.
The PD (Parametric Deluxe), PC (Parametric Custom), and PG, the Curt Gowdy model.
The Curt Gowdy rods were expensive at the time and may have cost as much as $100
They're very collectable.
The standards are just good fishin' poles
I use mine as the "behind the truck seat" rod. It's tough as nails and casts great.
