H-I rod ID


Post by kilgore »

Dear Banjo,

I bought an unmarked 3/2 8'-10" rod with no guides or wraps that appears to be a Horrocks-Ibbotson based on its brown plastic down locking reel seat and ferrules. I saw the same reel seat on a H-I 8' Canada Creek on the Antiquerodandreels web site. Do you know other H-I rods that used that reel seat? Entirely possible that my rod is supposed to be a 9 footer since the mid is a bit short but the tips and butt are each 34 5/8. I have pix posted on the Appraisals and Id section.

Thank you,
