  1. In my opinion and from personal experience...storage location of any glass rod is a major factor. One time I was fighting a brown trout on my glass rod and it broke in half...I hand held the line and landed the fish,but what I attributed the break to was the rod had been stored in the rafter of a garage attic...extreme heat temps had to have dried out the rod making it brittle,etc.I had numerous other rods stored in the garage on ground level for years and never had a problem with them.
  2. The top blue flash giant pikie would be closer to $90-$110 The other blue flash bait in the 5534 box is actually a Striper pikie...$75 or so .. The other red/whites are common CCB
  3. sorry...thought I was...no harm please
  4. Hey guys... I've owned 3 of these reels and have seen several others..including the one in Ben Wrights book.....they are all the same type color...bronzeish,light colored, silvery,whatever you or I wish to call it...but anything but gold...like the other 710's.
  5. No mention in the book of the color of the medallions but the one pictured in the book is silver...and any I've had were silver. Also...read further and the number was around 400 or so...but I still think many more.
  6. According to Ben Wrights book..made in 1966...in smooth black and textured black....only 100 or so made....but I think more..I have found 3 myself that were original and not re-paints.They were hot at one time...I sold one for $250....another for $100...not sure what the value is now. Wrights book has them at $250....but that was 2002 edition.
  7. Nothing of any value there...the flatfish with the neat hardware is a 40's flapjack phantom...if in perfect cond.no more than $10...other is wooden flatfish pretty common..the rest are all very common.The best one of the group is the green paw paw mouse...but not in that condition,missing tail and other issues.If ex. would be around $25.Wish I had better news for ya.
