Re: Scott Identification Help
Yep, old "G" series and yes, its a med action presentation rod. I have one. Its sweet, if you like that action, and I do. This was about their top of the line rod for a number of years. I am not the best caster in the world but that rod will throw the smallest drys up to some decent double drop junk and take it all in stride if you play with it a bit. I use a true weight WF and DT on mine as well as a sink tip leader and again it does what its supposed to do.
As to the reel seat hardware, they offered that rod with that reel seat and then the wood insert uplocking seat. Mine has the up lock style.
I would strongly suggest sending it back to Scott and let them re-do it. It would be well worth the bucks. They are beautiful rods with that ruby wrap. Your cork seems to be in great shap though soiled from use. Thats no big deal.
Good luck with the rod......
