The rod was sold to me by the original owner who hardly fished it and it went in storage since he bought his first Winston graphite rod in the mid to late 70's....Just glad it stored well! He had another that was 6'6" and it looked just as good but much lighter in weight. should have bought that one also.HI I have 3 SND's each is quite different. I also live in Greenfield ,MA the home of SND. That rod looks refinished or it was in a plastic bag for 50 years, very nice! Also there is a book with the history of the company available.
Would love to see some photos of yours!
