back in the mid 80's my dad made custom surfrods , i enherated all of buiding stuff and rods . I was wondering could sometell what brand of blank this could be it fiberglass one piece that is then coaded in wire and then coated in finish i think it was called a rawhide or exuvialnt . im sure the comapny is long out of buissness but i have 10 ft rod that you cant break ugly but the stoutest i have ever seen and was wondering for future looking what it could be called

that could be an old harriongton blank. the first blanks that were used by the harrington company were surplus antenas from the army. do you know if there was any particular reason that your dad had kept that blank? it could possibly be that he kept it because it was one of the first that harrington put out.

Go to my latest post in the fishing reports section, under the title "Another Fine Day at Sea Rim". The rod in the first picture is an old Fenwick rawhide. That rod is about 30 years old and still fishing just fine.

Good luck with your search.

The Blank you Speak about sounds Like an Original Harrington Rod Blank,.. Keep it, Get a Knowledgeable Rod Builder,....Find its Backbone and Have The Rodbuilder or Yourself Build it,...... Hang it on Your Wall and Watch Your Buddies Drool When They see it in All Its Glory!!!! ( A SHOW PIECE ) EXTRODINAIR !!!!! I still fish with My Fenwicks 4 are surfrods,... 1 a 1689 Blank to be tied into a Distance Casting Rod, Soon,..and 1 Fenwick Rawhide Rod Rebuilt,... To Be hung On the WALL CAUSE I CAN!! Keep all the Old Stuff You Can,... so it too can Be Passed On to Someone Else!! I am Happy Knowing My Parents are Watching Over Me While I Fish !!
