Altenkirch Precision Outfitters Rod Blanks

Rate this topic

7 posts in this topic

I inherited these three rods. They were built by Altenkirch, but I am unsure of the blanks and models. Two appear to be graphite, maybe century or lami. The other is a lamiglas honey.

I am unsure of the exact model. I was hoping some of you gurus could help me out.

 

Here are the measurements. They could be slightly off because of the thickness of the butt and my inaccuracy.

 

Rod #1 113" Inches

Rod #2 84" Inches

Rod #3 Lamiglas Honey 93" Inches

It may not be impossible, but it's very unlikely that Altenkirch ever used a Century blank.  Lamiglas, Fenwick or Fisher, probably.

 

That shop built good rods, Al Goldberg told me so years ago. 

 

That first rod shows a very abrupt drop in diameter.  Can you tell what material the grip is made of?

The grip is the rubberized shrink. It is a really sweet grip actually.

 

My guess is a GSB 10' cut 6" off the butt. A GSB 7' stock length. The honey I am unsure of what power and action, etc.
