A very rare rod Paul, top quality and definitely deserves a good rebuild.

It looks likes there's a ground spike inside that butt cap too.

Wal, I checked and I am pretty sure you are correct, but it is stuck fast, I will have to get some WD40 on it :Thumb:

A fine rod . You seem to have a knack of picking up great items of tackle and then using them for the intended purpose ..... catching fish.
Exactly John, What they are intended for, and what reel to match it with :Confused:
I had a sticky butt cap Paul and following advice from Wal I poured boiling water on it.....boy did it sting!
Seriously though, it unscrewed really easily using a rubber glove following a good dose of boiling water.
Lovely rod by the way!
