3 piece 8ft HI with a swelled butt

#1

Post by Bamboo Doc »

I have a 3 piece 8ft Horrocks-Ibbotson single tip rod with a swelled butt. The HI logo sticker is small and round that says Horrocks-Ibbotson Utica N.Y. There is no other model name. I have several HI's but never have seen one with a swelled butt. The only other swelled butt HI that I have or have seen is the Tonka Queen. The rod appears to be original not made up from any other. The ferules or the tip top doesn't appear to have been removed. Any idea what model it could be?

Is that a rod with a butt, mid, and tip section (three-piece missing the extra tip), or a two-piece with extra tip? It could be a Princess...

The rod has a butt, a mid and a tip. All are the same length. It measures 8ft total when assembled. I have never seen a 3 piece HI that had a swelled butt. The only 3 piece 8ft HI I have seen is a Canada Creek and a Canada Creek rod does not have a swelled butt. The rod did not have a script model name on it. It has a small round sticker that says Horrocks-Ibbottson Co. Utica N.Y. on it with a rising fish over the top of it. That is the only identification there is.
