Hi guys i have a shakespeare fly rod im wondering about. It has carbon filament on its tube and the length and weight. I havent found any real information on it in the ways of if theyre rare, valuable or not. I did find they were called "graflite" or something like that. Anybody know anything about these and how much they might be worth? Thanks
It is not worth much.
Shakespeare cranked out alot of fly rods back then..
It is not a collectible item (a.k.a. dime a dozen).
Fish it - and enjoy it...
I agree with the fish it, they weren't made to hang on the wall, whether they are worth $20 or $2000. a lot of companies "cranked out" a lot of rods, but some are still worth money, it all depends on what it is. Heddon is a good example. all depends on what model, weight and length it is.
look on the reel seat also for letters, names, numbers ect. any more info on the rod itself?
Theres nothing on the blank itself or the reel seat, all though there really isnt a reel seat(im used to baitcasters) more like a couple rings and a flat spot on the cork. I can post some pictures tomorrow if that would help. I wish i was into fly fishing to use it but its just collecting dust.
