Not sure if this is the right place. Looking to get an ID on this Rod

It's a 10' Rod.  The guides are chrome with black body and white rings.  The Rod is black and what looks like silver.

 

I know it's a long shot, but any info would be nice.

It also has a Daiwa reel on it.  It's marked EL7000 Long Cast X Graphite.  

Worth using or chuck that as well?

you have a pic?

no,don't chuck anything!.

I need to see it first.

I had 4 reels that sound like the one you have.

one was a silver one 1600 samuri and 2 trout reels that were PM 1000's I think they are,still have those and then I have another one that's a PS 1600.

they all have long cast,long stroke spools/oscillation.

don'tthink they would work well with braid as the wider bottompart of the spool allows the "mono" to fly off easier than near the top which is much narrower.

lets see it.

Don't know the weight of it.  Maybe I should practice repair on it.  Any suggested rod guide sets to use?

whats wrong with the guides?

those used to get grooves in them from hard use or crack from the rod falling.

why do you need to know the weight of it?,,,it's a fishing rod if theres nothing wrong with it then fish it or hang it up.

Pretty sure they were Ryobi rods. 10' used to come with a Ryobi SX5 reel for about $39. Boy you just made me feel old.

 

possibly, my dad had one  and he probably bought it at Kmart---the only place for your fishing needs 50 years ago

The chrome has gone and the metal is all crusty and such.  Threading and epoxy also seems is about to fail.

I was just wondering about matching the correct line and lure sizes to this rod.  (I am a fresh water fly fisherman so maybe this does not apply)

oh,I see.

well,you didn't tell us that you did fly in sweetwater.

anyhow,from the looks in the shot you posted the rod looks like it is just old,looks good actually.

I see no reasons to tear it apart unless you can share more pix of the whole rod.

why destroy a vintage rod?

looks good from what I am seeing.

clean it up with maybe some soap/hot water and a scrubbie and see how they guides look then.

rod looks good,I'd fish with it but,it would have to be a winch rod though.
