i just came across a lot of old fishing rods, some with reels and some withou, for a very cheap price at a garage sale and i was wondering if anyone would be able to help me out with the value of some of the stuff that is labeled/marked:

- a 770 Sears Roebuck And Co. Reel, Model# 535.412830

- a NAFCO fishing rod from National Fiberglass Products in Yonkers,NY, i belive it sayd the number 35 on it, possibly the model #?

- a 661 6' Kwik Stix Tournament Rod, which also says FSG Chicago, IL 60635
Med/Hvy Action

- from what i can read on this one, its a South Bend Knight Rod with Reel

- a Shakespeare WONDEROD, a sticker on it says: Genuine CARBOLOY Top by MILD(something, cant read the rest of the word..) it has a PFLUEOER TEMCO 2075 Reel on it but it is not working right

Anything that you can tell me about the above would be greaty appreciated!! :D

thanks in advance!!:)

Unless the condition is virtually mint there's nothing spectacular there.
The Pflueger 2075 could get up to $50 minty in box

Not familiar with the Kwik Stix

Most of the Sears blanks and Soth Bend were made by Conolon Garcia private label! Worth? what some one will pay for it! The NAFCO rods are extruded solid fiberglass rods. Not worth much either and they are fun to break!! The explode like no other rod but it's not easy to do!!:D The Shaky Wonderrod someone might want of course it depends on the model. The guides are Carboloy by Mildrum!!

You made a purchase at a "cheap price" without knowing the value. Next time you purchase something, have an idea of what the value is. Throwing money away, is not cheap. ;)

Probably not worth much more than you paid.
