If you really got this stuff, I'd pay an awful lot of dough for a couple 9' Fishers.

I will have to go thru all the blanks and try to find numbers on them. Some Fishers are still in the plastic bag some are not. How can I tell which model they are. Some of the Fishers are white, black, and some brown. From what I can see all the Harringtons are black but no model numbers. Any help would be nice. I must have at least 200 other blanks of different brands.

The Fisher blanks which are white, black (not translucent charcoal grey) and brown would all be fiberglass models, of which they made plenty; real decent stuff but not near as sought after as their graphite blanks. Older Harringtons were all fiberglass, and all were black. If you post exact lengths and accurate butt and tip diameters (use a decent caliper) we could probably identify most of those for you.

Bill, I guess the black would be considered charcoal gray. Some say graphite. I didn't just FIND 200 blanks, I purchased them from a family friend who was a rod buider and is very ill.

The ones that say "Harrington" are the same thing wink.gif

 

Harrington was the "HAR" part of Harnell (the "NELL" part was Renell) and continued building the blanks after he sold the rights to the Harnell name to South Bend.
