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!

I have been given two vintage bamboo rods that were father and son rods. Father bought a Streamliner in 1946. I believe it to be an H-I. The other is a Montague Sunbeam bought for the son in 1951. Both are in fairly pristine condition. Any guesses as to their worth? mrmuddler

If your Sunbeam is in nearly pristine condition, it may be worth between $40 an $75, depending upon whether you have both tips, the the original rod sock with a label, and/or an original rod tube with a label. $40 without all of the extras, maybe $75 with all or most of them.

The Streamliner is not in my wheelhouse.
