Garcia Trolling Rod

3 posts in this topic

I picked up this intresting vintage Garcia trolling rod awile back and I havent been able to find out anything about it.I found a catalog with similar rods but nothing with this reel seat and butt.All it needs is a new bottom wrap and its back to great condition.Does anyone have any info on this ?

I cant tell what that Varmac seat says is it a 5H or 6H? 5H=igfa 80lb class

Looks like a 1976 Bicentennial edition 80lb class tip with mildrum rollers, a generic Garcia branded Aftco butt and Varmac reel seat. 

They made these red white and blue big game rods for a few years in the mid-late 70s but the Bicentennial had an American flag emblem on them. They also had a pretty blue stained wood butt. Thats why i think yours might be a replacement
