8 Weight 9' found in an estate sale.

Custom Rod with very nice guides and a run of the mill grip, cheesy reel seat and no butt. The rod is slow as Christmas-brings out every problem in my cast like a magnifying glass

The blank is Graftek Exxon. A bit of research and I find that this company was a branch of Exxon doing early research on graphite and composite stuff. Their only claim to fame was one of the first graphite racing bikes. According to what I read, the bike was superlight (for the early 70s) and great to ride. The downside was, since the technology was so new, it would follow catastrophically apart without warning! Oh well. There is no mention of any other products from them as best I could find.
