This is the board to ask about the identity, or for an appraisal, of a rod. Please use the outline as explained on the board. If there is a makers name, list that in the subject line. Make sure you include the length, number of sections, any identifying markings and the general condition. Adding photographs is always helpful!
Cwfly and 2dabacking, yes that’s exactly what I mean. We have the little “x”s on Abbey and Imbrie marked rods, and on unmarked rods, but as 2dabacking mentioned Mitchell and Pritchard, the question is, are those examples marked with the maker’s name? Or... are we just attributing those “x”s to what we “ believe” to be Mitchell rods and Pritchard rods? See what I’m saying? I’ve seen rods mistakenly called Mitchell that were actually Bowness and Bowness. If I’m not mistaken Pritchard and Mitchell didn’t mark their rods with their name? Again, I’m just speculating for discussion.
