Love that E-Bay

Rate this topic

I managed to come across two 25 year old lami rods on e-bay. One spin (7093L) and one fly (no markings at all on the rod). The description claimed they were custom made from "egg shell" blanks. They look as though they have never been used but I am curious as the the final wrap applied to them. There appears to be no coating of any kind applied to the threads. Was this common back then. (listen to me, like its anchient history)

 

What if anything should be applied to these these rods?

 

I can supply you with more information on the rods if necessary.

Cool Hand,

 

Your "ancient" rods had the wraps probably coated with varnish. It was comely used back then. Varnish was water thin and required many coats for a thick finish.

 

I would leave the rods in original condition and keep them as a collectors item. I would not try to fish with them.

Thanks for the input...There must only be one or two coats of a water thin application cause I just don't see it...but anyway I like the color of the rods and the overall set up of them so I will probably just hang them in my shop.

 

Thanks again for the input.
