I use to work for them, but I never saw the number 2905. I would assume it was a two piece 9-5 weight. The older ones were built in the US and are pretty good buys at the right price.

I agree with Burk; Vermont-built Diamondbacks were well-built, solid performers. The Stu Apte series in particular had good tapers and durable construction of the old fashoned graphite type (glass scrim and thick walls). The Americana line was a latter, dumbed down transitional product eminating from Cortland's ill-fated aquisition but still OK if made in Vermont. I miss Diamondack and wish they had remained in buisness as an independant company, they could be doing great things today.
