my father dug this 8'6" 2 piece rod outta the garage in jersey...it has metal guides which needed to be cleaned with steel wool...anyone ever own one of these...this one has got to be from approx. 1974 when my dad won it in a sales contest...has NEVER been used...may make a decent light plugging/eeling outfit......

well...i found out that Berkley is now part of purefishing.com and went to their website. a young lady answered the phone so i told her what rod i had. she had to run into some back room full of archival info. finally she found it. it turns out the rod was made in 1972 and sold for 29.99! quite a hefty sum for a rod back then. she said the rod appeared to be rated for 8-12# line and 3/8-3/4oz lure weight. it seems as if it will handle more than that though. anyway i'm gonna throw it tonite and see how it handles. i'll bring an extra rod in case this old one snaps in half from sittin' around for so long..... rolleyes.gif
