Identification of bambo rod

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 bought one of these and stripped it and with new snakes ( 6 on the tip - one on the butt above the stripper) , it was surprisingly a decent and crisp 6 weight. Mine was branded "Diamond" but identical to this one.
