Wish i could afford wall ornaments lol. this one still fishes every day that i do i actually like it better than my new rods. been trying to pick up a couple chathsm specials but it hasn't been in the budget.
Sort of looks like my old Fenwicks save the color. I remember the days when we would bend those sukers right over, not so much now with the smaller fish we catch. Yeah i still use em and i call em Telephone poles !!.
more bend = more travel (like a shock absorber) which keeps the line tight a little longer should you need to walk away from the rod for a sec...so for solo fishing, that is a big advantage IMO. would never go back to the short stiffies.
It was most likely built for a friend of mine. He got a settlement for a car wreck he was in when he was like 19. He buys a boat and keeps it in brewers in plymouth. Horrified! Was the name of the boat. We got thrown out of brewers in short order and he ended up selling it after a season or two. Guy was crazy as shit and still is. I can ask him about them when i see him. Tight lines
