My brother in law left me a Cortland Black Diamond graphite, 8' 6" 6wt. I found little info in searching the net. A search here showed someone listing one for $125. I really love the way it fishes. I'm curious about the model's history, original price,date of manufacture, etc? Any help greatly appreciated.
That was before my time at Cortland but I remember them, as a customer. I suspect they were rolled either by REC or Diamondback (Diamondback private labeled some Cortland rods before Cortland purchased the brand). Cortland had some pretty good sleeper products back in the day, the CRI reels, LTD bamboo rods were all well made product. Not to even mention the early Cortland Diamondbacks.
